Students will learn how four American Indian communities
are working to address serious environmental problems.
They will watch brief videos, answer focus questions, use
interactives, and complete the online
Story Project Planner
to see how environmental issues are intertwined with cultural
preservation. To demonstrate what they’ve learned, students will
share a presentation with the class. Teachers, you are invited to
upload your students’ projects to our
Shared Stories Gallery.
