Welcome to Hopewell Culture NHP! In this first section of the curriculum guide, you'll find a greeting from park Superintendent Dean Alexander, acknowledgements, a users guide and the table of contents. This guide will provide you and your students the tools to understand and appreciate Ohio's prehistoric past. We encourage teachers to visit the park with their class to supplement the curriculum found in this guide. Hard copies of the curriculum guide are available to teachers at no cost when visiting the park. Again, welcome and enjoy your expedition into Ohio's past!
