Nelson Telson
Teaching Nelson Telson is a lively spiral curriculum of activity pages and teachers’ guides designed and field tested to conform with Next Generation Science and National Science Teachers Association Standards. Currently in development with the author and Lars Helgeson, PhD of the University of North Dakota, the curriculum uses the book as a springboard to introduce many topics that promote lifelong inner growth of children.

We are currently reorganizing Huck-Fin, a 501(c3) to support the Teaching Nelson Telson curriculum development. To help support our project, when you shop at amazon, please shop with Huck-Fin as your charity.

  Science & Art

Teaching Nelson Telson is based on the book by Heidi Mayo. The ebook will be available to teachers and students who have subscribed to the curriculum program here at the Huck-Fin site. In the meantime, you can visit Amazon to read the reviews or purchase the book.


Many of today's children are disconnected from the natural world that sustains them. The aim of the Teaching Nelson Telson Curriculum is to teach lessons that children will use for a lifetime.
