Project SLICE Curriculum

students-lake4.jpg Our Salt Lake Initiative for Conservation Education - or Project SLICE is place-based education at its BEST! Who we are and want to be, both individually and as community, is defined by where we are--in the landscape that surrounds and supports us. SLICE teaches students about their own back yard through the conduit of the Greater Salt Lake Ecosystem. It provides endless opportunities for lifelong learning, civic pride and stewardship of the earth.

Project SLICE, is designed to assist teachers with matching the wealth of scientific, cultural and economic attributes of Great Salt Lake to their own standards-based instructional needs. The curriculum is available for download, below.
