Students interview elders about special places and, as an option, take a field trip to discover their own “special places.”
Students’ discovery of their environment—and of their families’ and their own special place within the environment—promotes respect and care for the land. This lesson provides an opportunity for the students to interview elders, to experience finding their own special spot in the community’s landscape, and to explore the connection between land and people.
