This National Parks Power Point presentation includes information and original photographs of the following National Parks and Monuments in the western part of the United States:
Yellowstone National Park
Grand Teton National Park
The Petrified Forest National Park
The Painted Desert
Grand Canyon National Park
Mount Rushmore Monument
Crazy Horse Monument
Badlands National Park
I created this Power Point presentation to take my students on a virtual field trip to unique areas in the western United States protected by the National Parks Service.
(Crazy Horse Monument is not a federal or state project.)
Original photos and researched information are used to engage the students in dialogue about the importance of protecting land and wildlife for future generations.
This National Parks PowerPoint Presentation is a terrific tool to use prior to student research on National Parks and Monuments in the United States.I have included links so that students may continue to research these areas of interest and many more.
The National Parks Service is celebrating its 100th birthday this year (2016).
