Welcome to Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area's Parks as Classrooms educational opportunities. The recreation area protects some outstanding natural and cultural features. With such diverse resources, Lake Roosevelt has a lot to offer educators. Parks As Classrooms programs can be timed to introduce concepts, reinforce understanding, or stimulate culminating projects within a teaching unit. All programs are designed to help teachers meet Washington State's education standards such as Common Core State Standards for English Landuage Arts and Mathematics, the Washington State 2009 K-12 Science Learning Standards and the newly adopted Washington State 2013 K-12 Science Learning Standards (Next Generation Science Standards).
In-park programs feature authentic learning that actively engages students and teachers with the park. Ranger-conducted classroom programs bring curriculum-based education experiences to your school. Enhance your students' understanding of the national parks, the environment, and local history with hard to find props and materials by borrowing a traveling trunk! All programs and materials are aligned with state and national education standards.
