Celebrate National Parks Week with your students, even when you don't have field trip money to visit the parks!!
This book helps teach Social Studies concepts like map skills and contains links to videos that immerse students in the sights and sounds of 8 different National Parks. The book also includes a mapping activity, questions/writing prompts to encourage students to think about the importance of and reason for National Parks, as well as a page for each of the 8 parks visited, where students tell what they learned, and write about what they would like to see in the park.
Great for teachers who want to give kids exposure to the natural world and our National Park System who do not have the means to visit these places. GREAT for celebrating National Parks Week (April 16-April 24)!!
