Flint Hills map and education program adds Osage Nation lesson plans
New K-12 curriculum available to educators, scholars, students, all.

Manhattan, Kan. – The Flint Hills Discovery Center (FHDC) recently introduced a new series of lesson plans to the Flint Hills Map and Education Program, a project supported by the FHDC Foundation. This project was created through collaboration of community and regional partners to first install informative maps to all schools within the Flint Hills region, but also to offer free Flint Hills based classroom curriculum online for educators and enthusiasts alike.

On the FHDC website, teachers can find lesson plans for students K-12. The lesson plans cover topics related to various aspects of the Flint Hills and are designed to assist teachers in inspiring students to learn more about the environment around them. The newest addition to those lesson plans are those focusing on the Osage Nation, their history, their culture, their present, and their future.

Through private funding, large-scale educational map exhibits about the Flint Hills were given to 183 area schools and colleges. The maps are designed to give a visual representation of the Flint Hills region and allow you to dive deeper into the ecosystem of the Flint Hills.
