Magic Mountain®

Curriculum Guide

The Magic Mountain® Curriculum Guide is part of an educational program Pre-K – 5th grade, ages 4 – 11, designed to lead teachers and students through an eight-week study of art, music, and outdoor education using the book A SONG AND STORY OF MAGIC MOUNTAIN.

Our goal with the Magic Mountain®  curriculum is to combine the freedom, curiosity, and imagination of early childhood education that takes place in forests and nature while weaving scientific, mathematical, artistic, and musical themes.
