Wolves and Me, Revisited

How has this Quest changed the way you think about wolves and coexisting with them?

You are reaching the end of this Quest! Take some time to reflect on your journey. 

  1. Where did you begin? Think about what your understanding of coexisting with wolves was when you started the Quest. 
  2. Where are you now? Think about what you’ve learned, what you’ve accomplished, and how you’ve changed along the way.
  3. What were your ah-ha’s, favorites, and challenges? What are you most proud of or excited about? What are you still curious about?

Revisiting the Wolf Survey: Have your views changed?

Now that you've finished the Quest, re-take the survey you completed at the beginning of the Quest to see how your views might have changedRemember that you or your teacher created a unique Wolf Pack Name and Wolf Number for the pre-survey, and you'll need those pieces of information again for the post-survey.

If you’d like to look at class survey data for patterns and trends, teachers can request this at c.camara@colostate.edu.
