Welcome to . This curriculum is designed to introduce students (grades 5-8) to the role and importance of native plants in the United States and abroad. As students conduct situational simulated expeditions in the tallest (Himalayas), longest (Andes), and oldest (Appalachians) mountain ranges in the world, they explore different themes related to native plants, such as biodiversity and ethnobotany. Throughout the five modules comprising the curriculum students also conduct related local activities, enabling them to learn about their surroundings and to consider local/global commonalities. Module 1: piques student interest in mountains through the tale of the Ice Maiden, a 500-year old Incan mummy discovered on the summit of Mount Ampato in the Peruvian Andes. The module then presents the importance of mountains through open-ended questions that provoke curiosity about topics addressed in later modules. Mountain Adventures
