Junior Duck Stamp Educator Guide

This Junior Duck Stamp curriculum focuses on the conservation of waterfowl and wetland habitats. It is designed for students in grades 5–8, with adaptations for K–4 and 9–12. There are tips in each unit of the Educator Guide for adapting activities for early elementary and high school students.

Educators will find a variety of information and resources in the Educator Guide to take the guesswork out of designing a Junior Duck Stamp program or to enhance an existing program. Resources from general waterfowl and wetlands information to standards correlations will help meet educator and student needs. Suggestions for adapting content to lower or higher grades are provided in the Unit-by-Unit guides.

The Junior Duck Stamp Youth Guide, as a supplement to the Educator Guide, includes all the information and instructions learners will need to explore waterfowl and wetlands in their communities.
