With carefully prepared lessons and the right connections, a field trip can also serve as an opportunity for students to become exposed to the rich historical legacy of institutions in King County and Washington, and of their surrounding neighborhoods.
These materials offer a historical perspective to supplement visits to West Seattle's rocky beach habitat. The curriculum will also align with Washington state academic expectations, including EALRs and CBAs.
Activities from Welcome to the Green Land: A Children's Guide to the Alki Area of West Seattle, a 4Culture HCE project developed by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, are included to supplement the lessons.
This curriculum was developed through a partnership between HistoryLink.org and Heritage 4Culture.
