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.
Aimed at fourth-grade students living in the historic Everglades watershed, this curriculum kit takes students on an interactive trip from the Kissimmee River to Lake Okeechobee, through the Everglades, and out to Florida Bay.
