Problem Based Learning

Learn about the North American First People’s Day celebrations. Use our website to explore the Portage Path through the eyes of students. Bring timely resources into your classroom and home.


This website started as a problem based learning challenge for three schools in two nations initially in 2017. The research, content and drawings were curated by students from The Lippman School and Portage Path Community Learning Center in Akron, and the Northern Cheyenne Nation in Montana. We hope that as you walk this ancient path in Akron, Ohio you will learn something new and share your experiences.
