Saiga - spirit of the steppe


This teaching guide and corresponding booklet were created for use by the Steppe Wildlife Clubs in Uzbekistan. Knowing that there are a wide range of ages that participate in the clubs, the materials have been designed to facilitate the older students helping to instruct those that are younger. The older students will be referred to as “mentors” and the teachers will be referred to as “instructors.” The booklet and activities, with the help of the instructors and mentors, will be used to encourage learning and thoughtful discussion about saiga and what can be done to help their species. The guide follows the booklet page by page, with suggested topics of discussion as well as ideas as to when to incorporate activities.
