Devils Tower National Monument is pleased to bring the park's resources to your school through the Devils Tower in Your Classroom (DTIYC) program. Schools within 100 miles travelling distance of Devils Tower may request a ranger to visit their classroom and deliver a program about park resources.
DTIYC programs are about 45 minutes long, but can be adjusted to fit your class schedule. Our education staff can deliver a presentation on one of the following topics:
- Legends of the Tower - We look at some of the American Indian stories about the creation of the Tower, and discuss the cultural significance of stories and storytelling
- Geology of Devils Tower - A "rocking" presentation about the scientific perspective on the formation of Devils Tower; rock samples provided!
- Ecology of the Black Hills - We investigate the different habitats and organisms found at Devils Tower and in the greater Black Hills region
You may also download our DTIYC program listing, which contains topic suggestions for various grade levels. Program topics are generalized; we offer curriculum-based material, and can adjust the presentation based on your students' age, learning styles, and your specific teaching objectives.
To request a DTIYC program, please submit the DTIYC Program Request Form. Park staff will contact you to confirm your program date and discuss your teaching objectives.
