Help connect your students to wildlife and wild places through Shamu TV's award-winning environmental education series, Saving A Species. Created with elementary and middle school audiences in mind, Shamu TV brings stories about conservation efforts worldwide, and helps kids understand how we can each help protect these amazing animals.
Accessible via DVD and online, ShamuTV is ideal for the blended classroom experience.
Each ShamuTV episode comes with a Teacher Toolbox. In it you’ll find things like background information, activity descriptions, vocabulary, games, and worksheets. These materials are designed to help educators build lesson plans, spark discussion, and to help inspire your students to become stewards of the world we share with wildlife.
“Cheetahs Under the Hood,” for example, is the first in a fast, fun, four-part series designed to give kids a real-life look at this amazing animal. Kids even get to see the cheetah’s speed, racing against a top NFL running back on – you guessed it – a football field.
The full four-part “Saving A Species: The Cheetah Story” also focuses on the fragile existence of this rare and wonderful predator – and what is being done to help save them (full length est. 26:00).
