Pre- and Post-Visit: Winter (Grades 1-2)
Students that have spent time preparing for their visit to Glacier National Park get more out of a field trip to the park. Activities post-visit also help to reinforce information learned during the trip.
The following are some of our suggested pre-visit activities, as well as supplementary materials that may aid in preparing for your trip.
Winter Ecology Teacher's Guide (pdf) - this is a large file and may take time to downloadWhat Causes Winter? (pp. 14-15)

Did You Know?
Glacier National park was named for the glaciers that carved, sculpted, and formed this landscape millions of years ago. Despite the recession of current glaciers, the park's name will not change when the glaciers are gone.
