In this collection of resources is one of Facing the Future’s lessons: Engaging Students in Conservation: Protecting the Endangered Snow Leopard. We have included Lesson 1.

In addition, included in this forum are lesson plans by teachers who participated in our online professional development course around our curriculum Fueling Our Future. As a final step in the course, we ask teachers/participants to create a lesson incorporating what they learned from the eight modules.
