Teide National Park is a geographic space that has unique geological and natural characteristics, which validated its declaration as World Heritage Site in 2017. However, human activity has been recorded since pre-hispanic times, whose actions left their mark in the territory, this has allowed archaeology to understand how “guanche” human occupation has been articulated in the high mountain contexts of Tenerife. Nowadays, high school teachers have the inconvenient of a severe lack of visitable archaeological sites in Tenerife. Spaces in which the students can elaborate their knowlege about the aboriginal cultures of The Canaries. Therefore, in this article we intend to analyze the educative potential of this geographic space for the teaching of the Social Sciences, and especifically for History. We present an educative proposal which integrates Teide National Park in the education methods of the pre-hispanic period, specially having in mind the use of archaeological ítems, guided visits or other activities.
