Below are some resources which can be utilized  to help your students have a beginning understanding of the concepts and vocabulary involved with our education programs.

Some of the activity resources are aimed at our Expedition to Moku o Lo'e and Overnight Program Labs - others are aimed at establishing a basic knowledge base for our Walking Tours.
