Curriculum Connections

Naturalized areas, whether under development or complete, can be used to teach and highlight many aspects of the curriculum. Activities need not be complicated to be effective.

As the planning phase is considerably long, incorporating curricular links during this time is important to ensure that planning does not become an extra burden.

Thinking about future lessons is also important in guiding the planning process. Once developed, long-term sustainability of the site is impacted by student interaction with the completed landscape. Grounds for Change offers resources, professional development, and student programs to help schools with this process.
