Views of the National Parks (Views) is a multimedia education program that presents stories of the natural, historical, and cultural wonders associated with national parks. Views includes a Badlands Virtual Experience. Your classroom’s journey through this virtual experience will teach you about the past and present of Badlands National Park. See life as it is today, and learn how paleontologists use scientific information to understand what life was like in the distant past.
The Views Teacher's Lounge offers standards-based lesson plans and other resources.
