Show shows to 7th graders in science class

Postby conibear1 » Sun Oct 04, 2009 2:58 pm

I show the deer and deer hunting shows to my students during our 2 week deer unit. I try to have it start just before deer season. Over the last 5 years, girls that deer hunt, at least in my classes, have increased in numbers! They equal the boys now!! I love it!!

Thats awesome.   Hope the numbers keep going up.

Thanks for what you do!

Welcome to the D&DH forums, Jeff.

So, you're a teacher and you're promoting hunting in your 7th grade science class? Way to go!

You've reminded me of a science project my son did in 10th grade. He opened a deer's heart, nailed it to a board that was cut to fit into a cake pan, and then he labeled all the parts of the heart. Then he covered the whole thing with cellophane. That teacher was impressed.

When the Everyday Hunter isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.

I agree, we definitely need more teachers like you and schools that will support this. I can remember growing up I attended my gun safety class through the school. Why this isn't done in schools these days I don't understand. There would be a lot less gun accidents among children if they were taught about guns and gun safety at a young age. Again, great thing your doing!

I teach in a rural school in Pennsylvania and I have a bulleting board in my classroom that is the Braggin Board. I have all kinds of pictures after deer season is over. The kids love it both boys and girls. I also have over 1,000 magazines from deer and deer hunter, buckmasters, Rack, North American Hunter and so on that they borrow and read everyday. Keep up the good work.
I teach geography and I always do some stuff on the Golden Triangle and states that have great deer numbers for hunting.
We used to have an activity period and during that time I would have the Hunting club. We would talk about PA regulations and show hunting DVD's. I am inthe process of trying to get Archery in the Schools for my middle school.
