Materials from the Eisenhower Math and Science series
In October, 1990, with Discovery director Cinda Stanek and naturalist Steve Merli, I gave separate natural history workshops for teachers at Sít’ Eetí Shaanáx, (Glacier Valley Elementary) and Floyd Dryden Middle School.
The area visited with our workshop teachers, and described in these materials, was closely confined to middle Jordan Creek and the lower slopes of Thunder Mountain. It’s quickly reached on foot from either school. However, the Visitor Center’s easy proximity from GV/FD makes that area appealing for bus or carpool trips (or day-long 5th-grade commencement walks as Merli’s been doing lately). Teachers interested in the Glacier Visitor Center and greater Recreation Area should check out our materials package for Mendenhall River School.
Deliverables from the Eisenhower workshop for Glacier Valley & Floyd Dryden schools resided for a time in 3-ring binders, given to the school libraries. Today, they’re digital:
● Our workshop manual Nature near the schools: Glacier Valley & Floyd Dryden is a 9 MB
● A slideshow, originally in the form of 35mm slides (yes, kids, that’s what “slideshow” means!) is now available as a 17 MB powerpoint with presenter notes
