The I-ROAM youth education project is a cooperative endeavor of the Idaho Rangeland Resources Commission, University of Idaho, Idaho Bureau of Land Management, Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation, U.S. Forest Service, and the Idaho Soil and Water Conservation Commission.  The Idaho 4-H Rangeland Skill-a-thon is part of this project and directly links to this curriculum.  Other youth programs include experiential  field trips, an educational trailer, and classroom presentations.

Life on the Range  is an educational project with more than 50 videos and written stories about rangeland management, ranching, and recreation on Idaho rangelands.  A few examples are shared in the tabs below for your convenience.  The categories include cattle, sheep, education, conservation, noxious weeds, land management, and fire and rehabilitation. This website is updated often with new materials and resources.

The I-ROAM curriculum was initially designed to help the 4-H Rangeland Skill-a-thon participants prepare for the event.  This curriculum is easily adapted for classroom use. Download the guides here:

Each section below is in addition to the I-ROAM guide books and provides activities, PowerPoint lessons, note guides, quizzes, and readings.  The curriculum can be modified and adjusted to meet each teacher’s specific needs.
