Polk Central second graders study hellbenders with Champions for Wildlife

Champions for Wildlife recently joined forces with eager second graders at Polk Central Elementary School to delve into the fascinating world of hellbenders.

Through an engaging clay activity, students not only learned about these unique creatures, but also showcased their creativity and teamwork skills.

Hellbenders, large aquatic salamanders native to eastern North America, captivated the attention of the young learners as they discovered more about these elusive creatures. With enthusiasm bubbling over, the students eagerly embraced the opportunity to craft their own hellbender-inspired artwork.

The collaboration between Champions for Wildlife and Polk Central Elementary was made possible through the generous support of the Stuart and Margaret L Forbes Foundation. Its contribution ensured that students had access to enriching educational experiences aimed at fostering a deeper appreciation for wildlife conservation.
