Wyoming Stewardship Project

The Wyoming Stewardship Project provides:

  • Standards aligned, project-based units ready for your classroom.
  • Authentic context and applications for Wyoming students to better understand their home state through integrated lessons that teach stewardship of Wyoming’s resources.

For a complete look at the standards covered by units, view the Master Standards Map. Please note, this is a draft that showcases all standards covered in pilot and final lessons. This is will be updated as lessons are revised.

Currently, one full unit is available for 2nd and 4th Grades. All other units are being piloted and will be accessible here as they are revised according to feedback. If you would like to become a pilot teacher, please contact us at info@wyaitc.org or call 307.369.1749.


Student and Teacher Resources
Thank you for taking time to utilize the Wyoming Stewardship Project in your classroom! This project has been many years in the making. The Wyoming community was first surveyed to find out what was most important for our youth to understand about our state as they graduate. From those results, stakeholders worked tirelessly to create key learning concepts in four main sectors: agriculture, minerals and energy, natural resources, and outdoor recreation and tourism. At the conclusion of their work they found natural resources were vital in the other three sectors.  Natural resources was then embedded in the three units that were desired for each grade level: agriculture, minerals and energy, outdoor recreation and tourism.

The project currently focuses on grades 2-5 and the initial units have been created with two units currently available and additional units are being piloted during the 2017-18 school calendar year. Wyoming educators, in collaboration with field experts and support from the Wyoming Department of Education, developed the units you are about to teach in your classroom.  The participating Wyoming educators represented the entire state to develop these units with you and your students in mind. We are grateful for their efforts.

These units are not intended to be a burden, but were created purposefully to be easy-to-use, cross-curricular, and comprehensive. Units have been developed to align vertically in grades 2-5 and horizontally across grade level standards. Units build on each other throughout the grades, however can be used independently without loss of integrity.

Our hope for the Wyoming Stewardship Project is to empower students to be our critical thinkers and problem solvers of tomorrow. We believe the stewardship definition captures the overall intent: As Wyoming citizens, we are stewards entrusted with the responsible development, care, and use of our resources to benefit current and future generations.

Thank you again for your effort in the classroom and advancement of this pivotal project for our state.
