National Park Service (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC. National Register of Historic Places.
Part of the National Park Service "Parks as Classrooms" heritage education program, this educational outreach curriculum was designed for a wide range of grade levels to use the resources available at Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site (Montana). The curriculum subjects include cultural heritage education and environmental education. The curriculum's teacher guide provides background information for classroom preparation, ideas for on-site activities, and follow-up study for post-visit activities. The curriculum contains a video to prepare for the class visit and to help the teacher decide which activities are best suited for the subject matter being studied. The following sections begin the curriculum guide's "table of contents": To the Teacher; Program Description; Logistics; Area Map and Information; and Group Reservation Form. The guide then offers section 1, "Life on the Range: The Frontier Cattle Era," and section 2, "Cottonwood Creek Nature Trail." Appendix A contains extension cowboy culture activities, while Appendix B contains extensive nature trail activities. A Program Evaluation section is attached. (BT)
