Buddy Bison Teacher's Toolkit

Discovery Charter Jan3The Toolkit gives educators lesson ideas and fun facts about our local, state and national parks, wildlife refuges, forests, monuments, and historical sites.  The toolkit has been used by our Where's Buddy Bison Been?™ School Program. 

"Our hope is that Buddy can be used as a tool to inspire creativity and innovation in reconnecting children with our nation's parks. Kids will want to show where they and Buddy Bison have been at local, state and national parks. Together with Buddy Bison, they will be motivated to climb mountains, find beautiful natural locations, and protect the parks and the environment with their family and friends," says NPT  Vice Chair, Diana Leon Taylor.
