Back to School – in America’s National Parks
National Park Service Helps Teachers Make Learning Fun & Relevant.
Teachers across the country have a new tool to help them engage their students in classroom and place-based learning.
Yesterday, the National Park Service (NPS) launched a new online service for teachers that brings America’s national parks, including Olympic National Park, into neighborhood classrooms. The new “Teachers” section of the National Park Service website at www.nps.gov/teachers provides a one-stop shop for curriculum-based lesson plans, traveling trunks, maps, activities, distance learning, and other resources. All of the materials draw from the spectacular natural landscapes and authentic places preserved in America’s national parks.
