Parks as Classrooms

Field Trips

At the Tule Lake Unit students can learn the cultural history of the Civilian Conservation Corp enrollees, German and Italian Prisoners for War, and about the incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII. Students can walk in the footsteps of these different groups while learning about the struggles they endured and the accomplishments they achieved.

Guest Speakers

Invite a Ranger to come present in your classroom. Rangers are happy to help teachers in schools near Tule Lake learn more about this time period in history. In the past teachers have requested a visit before taking a field trip, or before taking on a class project such as reading Farewell to Manzanar. Whatever the case is please let us know so we can create a presentation around your needs.

Traveling Trunks

The Tule Lake Unit is currently creating two traveling trunks that will contain curriculum materials related to the incarceration of Japanese American's during WWII. Trunks should be ready for the 2013 - 2014 school year. If your interested in being one of the first classes to use the trunks please contact education coordinator, Angela Sutton, at 530-667-8119.
