A few tips on how I conducted each activity!
Thank you for looking through my store and settling on the picture book project of National Park Research Project! I wanted to give you some ideas on how I used each activity, but please feel free to use the activities in any way that you see fit.
(1) National Park Research: I use these pages as the initial research for the postcard project. The students have several tasks that they need to complete with this page. I use the website nps.gov for the students to do their research. It has a ton of different information that the students can make use of to complete the project.
(2) Postcard: The students use the information from the fact sheet to design a postcard from their selected national park. On the back of the postcard, I have the students write to someone about their “experience” at the national park. They can discuss the terrain, animals, or anything that goes along with their “journey” through the national park.
I hope you enjoy!
