Looking for resources for teaching about the Missouri River, examples of river action projects, or ways to take learning outside? You’ve come to the right place. You're just a little early.
In the spring of 2020, Missouri River Relief will launch a Missouri River Curriculum consisting of 5 lesson plans for elementary students and educators that incorporates the ecology, history, and stewardship of the Missouri River.
The new curriculum seeks to build elementary students' knowledge and understanding of the Missouri River through hands-on experiences that will deepen their connection and sense of responsibility to its stewardship.
Big thank you to Darcy Higgins, instructor of the Missouri River All-Stars After School Program who is co-developing and piloting these lesson plans in partnership with Missouri River Relief.
