Caption suggestion: “Wild Illinois History” helps students in grades 3 through 5 focus on early French exploration, along with river and settlement geography. As a supplement to the Illinois history curriculum, students learn how wildlife helped Native Americans and early settlers survive. They then can see how wildlife is part of our lives today. The website also highlights the 20th century conservation movement, which changed how we think about and manage wildlife.

Caption suggestion: Toussaint Bouchard (Toos-SAHN BOO-shard), a fictional French trapper who travels and trades in the 18th century Illinois Territory, leads students through activities. Toussaint gives students who complete the voyage instructions on how to make their own "possibles bag," a small, easy-to-make leather pouch.
