Are you an educator working near the Trail? FBT’s Education Committee, headed by board member Amber Kleeschulte Richard, has created some great new resources for you to download.
The Education Resource Packet is a in-depth guide of education goals, student activities, background of the FBT organization and the Trail project, and links to further informational resources.
“Bingo on the Trail” is a bi-lingual PDF you can download and print out for exploring and identifying common objects along the Trail.
Many thanks to Amber and the committee for pulling together these materials. The Trail is a great resource in and of itself for your classroom: it’s perfect for learning about transportation, Chicago history, cultures and communities near the Trail, politics and urban planning, and local environmental issues, to name a few. Check out these materials, contact the committee to get involved, and be sure to download these documents and take advantage of them for your curriculum planning.
