9-10th Grade Curriculum

The entire contents of this original Carhart wilderness education Curriculum Guide is available for download below. It has been broken into smaller sections to decrease file sizes and to enable you to pick and choose which files you want. You may also choose to download the entire manual here. Keep in mind that this is a large file (1,985 Kb). The only difference between the files below and the original published document is the omission of blank pages that served to separate chapters and blank pages used for note taking. Due to the missing blank pages, the numbering of some of the documents may appear to be off. A number of the activities found in the lessons below rely on props that were originally provided in companion "trunks". Staff and funding to develop, distribute and maintain these trunks is unavailable. Feel free to modify these activities to make use of materials you have on hand. To obtain a digital copy of the Wilderness Reader, a compilation of articles referenced in some lessons, please contact Elaine Poser.
