Interactive: Wild, Feral or Domestic?
More About This Resource...
Our innovative Science Bulletins are an online and exhibition program that offers the public a window into the excitement of scientific discovery. This interactive was published in May 2008 as part of The Last Wild Horse: The Return of Takhi to Mongolia Bio Feature. Students are presented with photographs of the following eight horses and challenged to guess if they are wild, feral, or domestic.
- Shetland Pony
Supplement a study of biology with a classroom activity drawn from this Science Bulletin interactive.
- As a class review the difference between "wild" and "feral," or have students read the When is "Wild" Actually "Feral"? essay if they need an introduction to the topic.
- Working individually or in small groups, have students challenge themselves with the Wild, Feral or Domestic? interactive.
