Pre- and Post-Visit Classroom Activities
There are many resources for classroom lessons that prepare students for their Glacier field trips.
The links on this page will take you to sample timelines and sequencing for lessons from the Glacier Teacher's Guide and other curriculums that cover vocabulary and concepts rangers will be using on the field trip.
If you have a lesson or series of lessons that has worked well with your students and you would like to share, please contact the Education Specialist to add it to our website.
