The landscape surrounding Idaho Falls is unsurpassed in all of North America. Known for its diversity in geology, biology, and ecology, the landscape is bordered on the west by the Snake River Plain characterized by its stark, barren lava flows and sagebrush. To the east, the rugged Teton Range dominates the landscape, while to the north lies the spectacular Yellowstone Plateau. It would be difficult to find a more attractive landscape for the study of science! We'll observe and study the living and nonliving elements of Idaho’s landscape, and provide a wealth of field activities that can be adapted to any grade level. We'll take a multidisciplinary approach as we weave English, history, sociology, math, and art throughout this scientific course. Day one will be held at the Museum of Idaho, and day two will include a guided coach tour of Yellowstone National Park departing from the Museum of Idaho. Expect day two to be a 12-hour day.
