Overview

Students will be asked various questions about flora, fauna, and habitats of Everglades and other South Florida National Parks. Their answers will enable them to move around the “Everglades Baseball field”, and score points for their team.

Background

Our "National Parks" unit of the activity guide contains various lesson plans, each taking on average 45 minutes to an hour to complete, and targeted mainly at 4th-6th grade students. Most of these lessons focus on learning the location of, and characteristic plant and animal life of each national park unit in South Florida. A class doesn't need to complete every lesson in the unit, though some lessons do refer to one another and are better done in sequence. Each lesson comes with its own set of objectives and resources.
