Treasures to Share

By Clyda Lutz

I have been an Earth Science teacher who is retiring at the end of this school year. Using the National Parks as a part of my curriculum has been a wonderful opportunity for my students to explore this country. Each student in my class has been given the opportunity to select a park that interests them and then via the internet research it, collect pictures of it and then using their research turn their report into a 4 minutes narrated movie. Since no two students in each class was allowed to choose the same park they were exposed to the parks of all of their classmates via the presentation of their movie. The students also were required to make a travel brochure for their park. These were hung in the hall for all students to see. Hopefully this asctivity has inspired them to become as big of fan of the National Park System as I am.
