Mission: Resilience - Casa Grande Connections (Free)

by  Casa Grande Ruins National Monument

Program image

In Casa Grande Connections, a ranger will lead an exploration
of the community connections and resilience of the people who lived in the
Sonoran Desert. By exploring the Sonoran Desert
ecosystem and lives of the ancestral people, students
will gain an understanding of the importance of building strong connections in their own lives. 


During the program, students will play a web-of-life game and build their own web-of-resilience while engaging in mindful movement and mindfulness activities that promote self-regulation. This program can be modified for various grades and ages.
