Field Trips in a National Park can be an incredible experience in a outstanding learning environment, but even with this incredible opportunity, it is hard to get classes and students physically the parks.  The National Park Service has produced many lesson plans, videos, distant learning programs, and resources for teachers to give them opportunities to experience the National Parks online.  These resources are available for a wide range of subjects and grade levels.  Where is the nearest U.S. National Park to your community?

Very cool idea!

I'm actually jealous of these 4th graders, If it were high schoolers or even (cough, cough) college students, they would be able to appreciate it way more. But its amazing that the opportunity was given to these children.
