Hidden Pacific Curriculum Correlations

Hidden Pacific covers topics in life science and social studies. By exploring the ecology and history of three tiny, isolated islands in the Pacific Ocean, Hidden Pacific demonstrates the links between land and ocean and between the natural world and humans. Topics align with Georgia Standards of Excellence; following are some key correlations between the exhibit and curriculum standards by grade level.
