National Parks (625) (Grades 9-12)

National Parks is a multidisciplinary approach to viewing National Parks and related topics. The  geological processes involved in the  park’s  formation, the historical and civic background for the establishment of the parks, and the wildlife of the parks will be the major topics. The conservation movements that helped in the evolution of the National Park System, policies and programs will be covered. The main thrust will be for an audiovisual presentation centered on the PBS series by Ken Burns: National Parks: America’s Best Idea and other related series. Students will spend time on computers participating in on-line activities devised by the National Park Service and posted on their Webrangers site. Activities pertaining to the PBS on-line site will also be conducted. Comparisons  and contrasts with National Parks in other countries will also be viewed. (1/2 credit)
