The Arctic Journeys have been designed as educational adventures for students grades 4-9. They are both a chance for students to visit an exciting new location and an inspiring way to put them in the role of explorer. As they examine ancient artifacts, consider natural wonders and explore the culture of native Alaskans, your students will use their skills in science, social studies, geography and more. They will also have fun, with a focus, using the Internet.
In Teacher Notes, educators can find out more about the structure and rationale behind the study units, or "Learning Journeys," that have been developed for participating classrooms. All of the Learning Journeys have been developed with the National Standards in mind -- find out which standards are addressed and how they fit in with your current classroom objectives.
