Lesson plans for use with the sandbox
EPSCoR personnel have created educational curricula for use in conjunction with the sandbox, aimed at students in grades 6-12. The curriculum modules adapt and expand on materials created through the MapTEACH (Mapping Technology Experiences with Alaska’s Community Heritage) program, an EPSCoR partner. The modules have been reviewed by experience geoscience educators and aligned with Next Generation Science Standards.
Four modules are currently available, as well as appendices containing detailed instructions for software use.
