Brings a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to teaching about the Earth and Native cultures.

 



The Keepers books for native-centered science curricula are suitable for elementary and through older middle school students. They include stories that lead to an awareness that all things are related, followed by hands on activities and discussions that compliment the stories.

From the Introduction: As the stories in Keepers of the Earth unfold and you bring the activities to life, a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to teaching about the Earth and Native American cultures begins. With their close ties to the land, American Indian cultures are a vital link between human society and nature. Each story is a natural teaching tool, which becomes a springboard as you dive into the activities designed to provoke curiosity among children and facilitate discovery of the animals and their environments and the influence that people have on those surroundings.
