Teacher Planning & Teaching Themes

Request More Info!


We understand that organizing a trip with a class of students can feel like a daunting task. Below you will find all the information you need to prepare yourself and your students for a KSS School Program. Teachers, your greatest resource will be the Lead Teacher Information Packet. 

In this packet, you will find a detailed list of tasks to be completed including worksheets to help you plan for dorm and field group assignments.  To plan your curriculum and anticipate group logistics, we ask that you complete the online Logistics Pre-Trip Questionnaire and Curriculum Pre-Trip Questionnaire

We strive to meet the individual academic and personal growth goals of each school group by offering a variety of science curriculum themes. All themes host elements of science education, outdoor education, and environmental education. Each is designed to bring students into the field where they can learn and apply concepts within each of our academic themes.

Select one or more of the themes above when building your program. We'll then work with you to customize the combination of teaching approaches, activities, and lessons that will best support your classroom learning goals.
