Education Resources

This page is a work in progress. Cedar Creek's education staff are working hard to create and distribute resources to support learning and science inquiry to teachers, students and families who cannot be in school during the COVID-19 public health crisis. We will update this page as often as we can!


Resources are organized by grade level in this folder, and in the tabs below.

Video resources (with closed captioning) are also available on our Kaltura channel at
