Yellowstone Outreach Kits

MOR provides four different kits relating to Yellowstone National Park: Thermal Features, Prairie Ecosystem, Forest Ecosystem, and Riparian/Wetland Ecosystem. These interdisciplinary kits teach students about the components of an ecosystem while exploring the different kinds of Yellowstone animals. The Thermal Features kit introduces students to why and how geysers and other fascinating features exist. Lessons also incorporate writing, history, and traditional American Indian stories.
