Park Rangers in the Classroom
Although nothing compares to an in-person visit to the actual site, a field trip may not be practical or possible for your school or organization. You can invite a Park Ranger to come to your classroom and present a curriculum-based education program for your students.
The presentation can be used as an introduction to the subject matter, an overview, or to help prepare the students for their visit to the actual Minidoka Relocation Center site.
