We have been collaborating with NOAA Ocean Exploration, the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, Ocean Exploration Trust, and Schmidt Ocean Institute on exciting new educational resources. Lesson plans, fact sheets, and other resources about bioluminescence are available here. Resources about deep-sea corals and other fascinating topics are coming soon!
We created The Northwest Fur Trade: Cultures, Commerce, and Trade curriculum in collaboration with the National Park Service, the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Washington State University Vancouver, Friends of Spokane House, and other partners. It provides adaptable lesson plans with engaging activities to help students develop an understanding of the lasting impacts of the pivotal era for Native cultures, ecosystems, political boundaries, and more. Hands-on trunks are also available from Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area.
We created the free new educational video game “Fight the Bites!” for Clackamas County Vector Control. It’s an interactive adventure story set in “Clackamas Land.” Players help surprising characters stay safe from mosquitoes while exploring science concepts and having fun. Don’t let Mosquitula bite you!
Learn more and choose from different versions of the game at fightthebites.com.
They also offers free mosquito life cycle kits, books, and more that have been a blast to help them create!
Rick Reynolds created the new Investigating Ice Age Floods curriculum in collaboration with the National Park Service, the Ice Age Floods Institute, and other partners. The guide was edited by Krista Reynolds of Engaging Every Student and Janice Elvidge of the National Park Service.
