PROJECT BASED LEARNING: National Parks You are going to visit a national park in the United States. You will have to travel to the state of the national park, stay in a hotel or campsite, and pay for the cost of meals. Students can view a PowerPoint of popular National Parks to help decide which ones to research.

This project can be completed in groups or individually. There are plenty of activities for differentiation. I did not give a budget. You can easily give your students a budget to spend on the project.

1. National Parks PowerPoint – Discuss the different parks with students
2. Conservation President – President Theodore Roosevelt’s conservation efforts
3. I Live Here – Students can color their state and label the city where they live. Fill out the information below.
4. I Will Travel to Here – Students will color the state where they are visiting and complete the information.
5. I Wonder – Questions about the project that need to be answered during the research
6. I will Travel to Here – Visit websites for travel by airplane
7. I Will Travel to Here – Calculate gasoline costs if you would travel by car. (Great for higher students)
I Will Stay Here – Research and calculate hotel expenses.
I Will Eat Here – Research and calculate places to eat. (More advanced students can calculate for family of 4 or do more with this activity; compare prices, etc.)

11. State Facts
12. State Symbols

Buyer Feedback
"This is a really nice unit! I needed some ideas to plan a unit with my Gifted pull-out kids and this was just the purchase to get me there. It's fantastic all on its own."

"This set has been amazing! We used it as the foundation for an independent research project, and students have exceeded expectations."
