Online Educational Resources
1. Interactive Curriculum Units
Developed by NCA for educators anywhere, these interactive online resources allow you to explore Newtown Creek and it’s urban environment from home.
Grown from our Newtown Creek Urban Ecology STEM curriculum these materials allow for self-guided exploration, and while created to be most useful for young learners (namely, middle school students) they are suited for all ages. Each page is full of photos from in and around the Creek and a few even have assignments and data built-in to learn more, and to go deeper into various subjects.
