Habitats of North Dakota Program

Habitats of North Dakota (for K-12 Educators)

Habitats of North Dakota materials were developed to promote teaching and learning about wildlife conservation and resource management.

The Habitats of North Dakota curriculum units are broken down by the state’s primary habitat types: wetlands, prairie, badlands, woodlands and riparian.

Comprehension and critical thinking questions are incorporated throughout each of the texts. Each unit also includes vocabulary and review sections. The material in the texts meets the state life science standards for grades 3-6 and North Dakota Studies standards for grade 4.

A Teacher Resource Guide is also available online only to accompany the five Habitats of North Dakota texts and includes a variety of worksheets, assessments, maps, illustrations and other suggested activities for the units.

Teachers can request training on the habitat books through the Game and Fish Department (701-328-6615).
