CASPER, Wyo. — A new elementary curriculum designed to help Wyoming students learn about the state’s history and legacy industries is launching this fall.

According to a news release, the Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom organization is launching the “Wyo Wonders” curriculum, which it says is designed by and for elementary school teachers. The free classroom resources are designed to help students learn about Wyoming’s core heritage industries, including agriculture, minerals and energy, outdoor recreation and tourism.

“By completing the curriculum, students not only learn Wyoming’s history, but study Wyoming’s core industries, how they are connected, and the importance of those industries today as they employ critical thinking skills and begin to envision their future careers in their home state,” the release said.

The release says that WAIC’s team of Wyo Wonders educators hosted workshops for educators over the summer to familiarize them with the curriculum. The lessons and resources are available at www.wyowonders.org.
