Join me to learn all about some amazing state parks in the United States. Much is known about national parks, but little is often discussed out America's amazing state parks. Many of these parks are also listed as Historic Places. I have been to many of these listed state parks and can't wait to teach you all about them :)! Each week we will explore two different state parks. Since this class meets in an ongoing format, each week's content stands on its own and does not require previous...
The goal of this class is for students to learn about the geography, geology, wildlife and the history of each of the listed state parks.
Supplemental material will be provided however, no homework is required for this course. I will be sharing additional resources for students interested in learning more about each state park.
No formal assessment will be given for this class however, at the end of each lesson learners will be given a few fun "check for understanding" questions to help them with retaining information about what was taught during the lesson.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I have a BA in elementary education with a minor in history. I love teaching all subjects but most of all, I love teaching others about the world around them. I have a great love for history, nature and the great outdoors. I have been blessed throughout my life to have spent a lot of time traveling across the United States. During this time, I have been able to explore many of our country's beautiful National and State Parks. My parents were both educators. My dad was also a park ranger for many years before becoming a classroom teacher. My parents both instilled in me at a young age the love for learning, teaching and appreciating nature. I love sharing these same principles with others!
