Classroom Resources

Teach about Freshkills Park in your classroom! The landfill-to-park project is an interdisciplinary, engaging case study for all ages. Teachers have effectively used Freshkills Park to teach about  ecosystems, NYC history, waste and sustainability, architecture, and more.

These resources can be used alongside a virtual or in-person field trip. Book a program with Freshkills Park.
