Pick up fact cards and worksheets from the Visitor Center. Place the fact cards around the picnic shelter where students will be able to find them. For an extra challenge, you can place the cards in "hard to find areas" such as under the picnic tables. Give students a worksheet and a dry erase marker. Students should search the area to find all of the fact cards to answer the questions. After they ahve completed the question sheet, the teacher and students can go over the answers together as a whole class.
