Everglades offers a wide variety of materials for educators to bring relevant lessons from the field into the classroom. These materials may be used to develop stand-alone lessons, or as preparation for any on-site field trip.
You can also use our SEARCHABLE database of lesson plans.
Depending on staffing, we may be able to offer an in-school teacher's workshop on how to use our curriculum materials in your classroom.
