Pre- and Post-Visit: Winter (Grades 3-5)
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.
Suggested classroom activities from Teacher's Guide
Winter Ecology Teacher's Guide (pdf) - this is a large file and may take time to download
Stations worksheet (pdf) - the activities on this worksheet may vary slightly on your field trip day depending on snow conditions.
