This set of research graphic organizers includes all 61 U.S. national parks, including the newest, Indiana Dunes National Park. Graphic organizers are a perfect way to ensure your students are keeping their information organized and focusing on the most important aspects of the national park they're studying. This activity is great for reports and projects and can easily serve as a note-taking tool for an essay or presentation. It can also serve as the research project itself! The graphic organizers are perfect for integrating literacy into other subjects, especially science and social studies. They allow students to go beyond reading to really interact with the chosen text.
This makes an especially great addition to 4th grade classrooms with the Every Kid in a Park program that gives free national parks passes to 4th graders and their families.
Each 2-page graphic organizer includes space for information related to:
• Location (including a mapping activity)
• What groups of people lived here in the past?
• Why is it a national park?
• Year Founded
• Number of Visitors per Year
• Major Events in the Park’s History
