Elementary school students go on a natural history tour of gray wolves to learn about the largest canid in North America. Students explore an online interactive exhibit to learn more about wolf families and the relationship between humans and wolves. The lesson also features a virtual field trip where students learn about where wolves live and how to identify a wolf track.  

Students analyze cultural perceptions of wolves based on popular stories, parables, myths, and fairy tales, and create their own story based on facts they learned from wolf biologists.
