Plan A Field Trip
Parks As Classrooms uses the Understanding by Design framework, and incorporates California Common Core Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies.
Our inquiry-based park programs can be timed to introduce concepts, reinforce understanding, or stimulate culminating projects within a teaching unit. Programs are structured in three parts: classroom preparation, a national park field session, and classroom assessments in which students demonstrate what they have learned. Teachers are provided with resources, including learning activities and support materials. Learning activities are designed to allow students to work cooperatively.The first step is to choose the program best suited for your class. Program location and date will be confirmed with NPS staff once you have been selected to participate.
