Your State Parks in the Classroom

Non-Credit

Learners will visit a state park of their choice and explore the significance and history of the area. The learner will research when and why the park was added into the State Park System. The learner will also learn about the wildlife and plant life, through their exploration, and why the state park they selected is important to the conservation of natural resources and integrate this newfound knowledge into their classroom through the development of a unit plan.

Goals & Learning Outcomes:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the state park of their choice through either a historical essay or lesson plan and a photographic essay.
  • Explain when and how a chosen state park was added into the State Park System.
  • Explain the importance and role of the chosen state park in the state park system and
    locality.
  • Identify the wildlife and plant life local to the chosen state park.
  • Explain the importance of the chosen state park to the conservation of natural
    resources.
  • Participate in course activities from the perspective of a student to better understand
    and apply those activities to your own lessons.
  • Integrate knowledge learned into a unit plan integrating at least 2 subject areas, at least
    3 levels of Bloom’s taxonomy, and a variety of activity types.
