These opportunities for 6th, 7th and 8th grades challenge students with hands-on learning experiences in the park's cultural and natural resources, including critical issues affecting these resources. Each program was developed in cooperation with Tennessee middle school teachers and are correlated with state and national curriculum standards with an emphasis on science and social studies.
