Connecting the Geo-Inquiry Process to Your Teaching Practice

Can people from small fishing villages help protect oceans? Are cattle ranchers the key to saving the Florida panther? What can national park rangers do to improve girls’ education in Mozambique? National Geographic Explorers ask questions, collect data, and create stories that inspire others to take action. Bring these skills to your classroom with the National Geographic Geo-Inquiry Process.
