Teachers are finding very innovative ways to integrate local knowledge and resources into their curriculum, from looking at stone tools during geology units, to incorporating root picks into their science units on levers and pulleys!  Schedule your classroom visit today!  If you are an out of town teacher, please contact us for check out options at education@aleutians.org
