Maywoods' Education Activity Kits

Maywoods has a variety of activity kits for teachers and other environmental/outdoor education leaders to use with their groups during their visit to Maywoods.   Each kit's topic is designed to enhance outdoor learning.   The topics are:

  1. Maywoods' ecosystems: field, forest, and stream
  2. Exploring the environment using GPS technology
  3. Observing Maywoods' wildlife by remote cameras
  4. Energy

The lessons in each kit are developed for grades 4-9, but can easily be adapted to meet the needs of any age group.  In addition, the lessons meet state and national standards.
Each activity kit contains:

  1. Lesson plans
  2. A student journal
  3. Most of the equipment to be used with the lessons.
  • Each lesson lists materials and equipment with a notation of where it is located; either at Maywoods or special arrangements with the Division of Natural Areas.
  • All lessons and journals are pdf formatted and downloadable.
