Coyote Trails tailors every class visit and field trip to meet certain Common Core National Standards and state standards. Each program is different and can be designed to fit into your regular units, classroom vocabulary targets, and overarching themes in most cases.
Working with the Program Coordinator at Coyote Trails is the best way to plan an effective trip that meets your class's needs.
While you’re considering a visit from or to Coyote Trails, keep in mind that we emphasize hands-on, experiential learning and inquiry-based learning. We call this Coyote Teaching. Known by many other names, Coyote Teaching is at the forefront of experience-based and outdoor education.
If you are interested in our approach to teaching and the type of activities, we recommend the book Coyote's Guide to Connecting with Nature: For Kids of All Ages & Their Mentors, by Jon Young. It is a thorough and well thought out guide to help you continue the lessons in your classroom while still being able to meet all necessary state standards.
