An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Middle School Unit Using City Parks to Explore Social, Scientific, and Humanitarian Issues. Due to the transient nature of Anchorage, students need a sense of community in which recreation and education are inherently linked. In this unit, the parks of Anchorage will be used to teach the principles including:
botany, zoology, ecology, weather, land forms, water, and art. This interdisciplinary unit will provide hands-on, student centered learning in which they become active participants in planning, community issues, politics, science, aesthetics, and economics of the parks of Anchorage.
