Every Kid in a Park

Teachers, this 2015–2016 school year, we have committed to making federal lands available to every child! Children in the fourth grade can visit the Every Kid in a Park web site to learn about parks and earn a free pass. When they bring their printed pass to Wupatki National Monument or any other national park, we'll exchange it for a pass that lets the child and his or her entire family in for free. Students can use the pass as much as they would like until the end of next summer.

Lesson Plans

Bring Wupatki to your students. Find lesson plans to use before and after your field trip or independently in your classroom.
