Curriculum-Based Programs - Sixth through Eighth Grades

The education staff offers one program for students in the sixth, seventh, and eighth grade, in addition to the residential Schoodic Education Adventure program:

Fire and Ice (Fall, Spring)
While hiking around Great Head, we will read the landscape and share the story of Acadia’s geologic past. See evidence of the local rock cycle, glacial features, and plate tectonics. This program works best as a review of basic geologic terms and processes studied in the classroom. Warning: The hiking trail is considered fairly strenuous!
