Canyon Field School @Home: Ecology

Grand Canyon NPS

Overview

Canyon Field School @Home brings geology, ecology, human history, and dark skies curriculum to parents, educators, clubs, and children through online videos and downloadable activity booklets. These fun and focused learning tools double as a universal window through which STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) fields of study are connected to the natural world.

 


What to expect

In this module, students will learn about ecology at Grand Canyon National Park.

Broken up into five segments, the curriculum will teach students:

  • About adaptations animals need to survive in various environments 
  • How things found in nature can be sorted and classified using common attributes
  • That an ecosystem is a community of living organisms
  • How nature in our communities and backyards can be used to make art
  • About the important role plants, animals, insects, and humans play in an ecosystem 

Each segment has its own learning outcome and varies from hands-on application to exploring relative items found in your backyard, neighborhood, or local community.
