Live Hike programs topics
Channel Islands Live Hike: Island of the Blue Dolphins, Grades 4-6
Students discover Anacapa Island through an interactive, live visit with a park ranger and learn about the Channel Islands' tie to the book Island of the Blue Dolphins. They identify basic human needs and learn how culture influences the way people modify and adapt to their environments, such as when living on islands with fewer and less diversity of resources. The park ranger and the students discuss how human settlement relates to the location and use of various natural resources.
Channel Islands Live Hike: Chumash Indians on the Channel Islands, Grades 3-4
Students participate in a live, interactive visit with a park ranger on Anacapa Island to learn how culture influences the way people modify and adapt to their environments, such as when living on islands with fewer and less diversity of resources. Early Island Chumash had the same basic needs we have today, yet provided for them in different ways. Students compare Island Chumash life to life today.
Channel Islands Live Hike: What's in Your Backpack, Park Ranger?, Grade 2
Students explore park ranger careers in an interactive distance learning program. The park ranger shares the roles and responsibilities of his/her job.
