Welcome to the CTGR Kindergarten Science Unit


In the science lessons below, students will explore the flora and fauna that exists on the Grand Ronde Reservation and nearby culturally significant lands. The lessons place an emphasis on being “stewards of the land” and how the students can form relationships with the natural earth around them.

The goal of these lessons is to begin the work of creating a comprehensive Native American curriculum that spreads Native American culture and history across multiple subjects, rather than specifically Social Studies. The lesson plans below include both PDF and presentation documents to be used in the classroom.
