This book brings Alaska Native understanding of science and ecology to the elementary classroom, by showing teachers how to present local and ecosystem knowledge held by longtime inhabitants of southeast Alaska. It includes several activities for studying moon phases and tides, and addresses science teaching standards, inviting elders to the classroom, and Native language and legends. Native knowledge has an increasingly important role as mainstream America comes to terms with our dependence on a healthy earth.

We help Alaska's students meet state content standards! The content standards addressed by each lesson and activity are clearly identified in the text. When you teach from these curriculum guides, you know right away which standards you are meeting.

This book was funded by the National Science Foundation's Alaska Rural Systemic Initiative, through the Alaska Native Knowledge Network.
