The SMNHC Mini Curriculum is a great resource to use with your 5th grade students prior to their visit to the Sandia Mountain Natural History Center. All the activities are printable and don't take a large amount of class time. The activities will give your students a head start to help them get more out of the SMNHC field trip experience.
