A River Through Time

A River Through Time transports students back to the ice age where they learn how the landscape of Northeast Ohio developed. As students continue their "river journey", they discover the world and cultures of the Paleo People, Mound Builders and Woodland Indians. Complete with artifacts that are thousands of years old, classroom activities and student participation, this hour-long program reinforces many of the state standards, including the use of time-line, sequence, history, geography and vocabulary.
