Ask A Ranger
Flip your classroom! Grand Teton National Park has a variety of science and history to intrigue your whole class so let your students’ curiosity take the lead. Students research topics of their choice before this broadcast and compile questions for the ranger. The ranger will bring visual aids and do a general introduction to the park at the beginning of the broadcast and will then spend the rest of the time responding to the students' questions from their research. Students can use a variety of videos and on-line information to research prior to your online broadcast with the ranger.
How to Participate
Skype technology required. Spaces are limited and registration is handled on a first-come, first-served basis. You'll be asked to send the students' questions two days prior to the broadcast.
