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.
This Preparing for Your 1st-2nd Grade Winter Field Trip packet has all of the information you need to have a successful day with the rangers. The following activities and supplementary materials provide additional information and cover more grade levels.
