Curriculum Materials

We offer two online Teacher's Guides, the Teacher's Guide to Ozark National Scenic Riverways which covers a variety of topics including cultural history, springs, caves, wildlife, evolution and more, and our older online Teacher's Guide to Caves and Groundwater, "More Than Skin Deep." Both contain information, classroom activities and hand-outs, generally suitable for grades K-8 or homeschoolers.

There are lots of great websites out there as well. This link is to one of the best listings of Environmental websites for kids. The links are all high quality, fairly unbiased, with many official US and Canadian government agency kids' sites. You'll surely find something useful here.
