Teach It!

Providing free education tools and materials for teachers, interpreters, students, and lifelong learners inside and outside the National Park Service is one important way we support the agency's mission. The value of America's cultures and diverse heritages may be lost if it's not passed on to the next generation or experienced by the present one.

Educators and parents can find resources for all grade levels with programs like Teaching with Historic Places. These free, online lesson plans from the Teaching with Historic Places series feature the places where American women made history as pioneers, activists, entrepreneurs, humanitarians, and more. The National Park Service also offers other resources, such as theme studies and Junior Ranger books. Explore the Teacher's Portal for more tools to engage children and young adults.
