Creating Coastal Stewardship through Science Curriculum Guides
These seven guides were created by teachers for teachers. They provide middle school students with opportunities to observe natural processes at Point Reyes National Seashore to stimulate interest in science and environmental stewardship. Each guide is designed to facilitate hands-on learn experiences using science and the environment. Natural resources such as tule elk, California quail, Pacific gray whales, northern elephant seals, and the San Andreas Fault are highlighted because they are easy to identify and observe. All activities are linked to the California and National Science Standards.
