Learning Materials for Schools and Home Schoolers

Welcome to the best one-stop source for Alaska educational material for all subjects and all ages. For more than a decade, we have provided Alaska-specific materials for teachers, home-schooling parents, students in grade levels from pre-school through high school, and for adults who want to learn traditional skills developed and taught by a variety of Alaska’s Native people. Subject matter includes Alaska Native lore and pre-history, geography, history, and language arts. All of our materials meet the Alaska Studies requirement of the Alaska Department of Education.

To make it easy for you to find your way through our site, we have arranged our materials by topic, with links to each page at left. We have also included a selection guide, showing which materials are appropriate for which grade level. That section is preceded by a list of Alaska Content Standards, and a link to the State Department of Education's Content Standard site.

New to the site this year are our Resource Links and Alaska Trivia pages. We hope you find these both useful and fun. To start you off, a few Alaska trivia facts are listed below, along with a fun quiz.
