Just as in the K-3 activities, the 4-6 activities focus on connections as illustrated in the journey of Pluie the wolf. The connections are not just biological. They are also economic, political, cultural and spiritual. For this reason, we have intentionally widened the scope of the units and activities to a trans- or cross-discipline approach, and an ecosystem perspective.
Along with the ecosystem focus, the 7 units of the 4-6 activities also include explanations and discussion of 5 of the other significant themes for why Glacier is protected as a national park- biodiversity, wilderness, Native American connections, International Peace Park designation, and geology.
Many of the activities in this section are from Work House, the Glacier Science Education and American Indian Curriculum.
