Tigers are awesome. The world’s largest cats are beautiful, powerful, and exciting. Sadly, they’re also endangered. Losing wild tigers to extinction would be terrible enough, but it would also cause more problems than most of us even realize. Tigers’ roaming and hunting patterns keep their habitats healthy, allowing other animals and their environment to thrive. And the plants and animals aren’t alone. People need tigers, too!
This tiger lesson and game download provides you with everything you need to teach an amazing lesson on wild tigers. Your students will learn about the important role they play in preserving biodiversity. Additionally, they’ll discover why tigers are endangered and what they can do locally to help protect these beautiful, important animals.
