Although nothing compares to an in-person visit to the Natchez Trace Parkway, a field trip may not be practical or possible for your school or organization.Classroom visits are a very exciting way to introduce your students to the Natchez Trace Parkway by having an intepretive park ranger come and teach your students about the Parkway's vast historical and natural resources.These interactive education programs are a great way to enrich your classroom activities and bring your in-class lessons to life. Your students will learn about the Parkway through a hands-on, fun experience that they all will surely remember.

This fourth grade program highlights the special roles played by the National Park Service in preserving our shared natural, cultural, and historical heritage. Students will learn about their backyard National Park site, the Natchez Trace Parkway, and how the park theme ties into the larger story of early American history. At the end of the program, teachers will be shown how to print the Park Passes for each of their students. These passes will allow them and their families free access to all federal parks, lands, and waters through August 31, when they begin their fifth grade year.
