What have other teachers
and curriculum directors said about the benefits of the
Mississippi River Teacher Resource Kit
"I thought you would like to know that we have
adopted the Mississippi River Teacher Resource Kit as our
model for River Studies. "
-- Dr. Dean Hartmann, Iowa Rivers Curriculum Project
This would be good for any district located
on any river. Wetlands, migratory pathways, wildlife and
shoreline observations are not unique to life along the
Mississippi River. --Mike Hartoonian, Social Studies Curriculum Advisor
Wisconsin Dept. Public Instruction
The Mississippi River Guide is impressive.
The student workbook is chock full of facts, enrichment
activities, and it's entertaining. I read it all in one
sitting just for the information it contained! --District Social Studies Curriculum Advisor, Sparta,
Our teachers love the Activity Guide because the concepts
have all been digested for them. They can open the package and
teach. It's easy for teachers in the lower grades to interpret
to their students. The writing is perfect for my 10 year olds.
I like it because it doesn't talk down to them. Older kids,
through high school, can work directly from the resource
---Ann Webb, Jemicy School, Owings Mills, Maryland
