What’s New in America’s National Parks?

September 12, 2013

Back to School—in America’s National Parks
National Park Service Helps Teachers Make Learning Fun and Relevant

Today the National Park Service launched a new online service for teachers that brings America’s national parks, including the National Park of American Samoa, into village classrooms. The new “Teachers” section of the National Park Service website at http://www.nps.gov/teachers provides a one-stop shop for curriculum-based lesson plans, traveling trunks, maps, activities, distance learning, and other resources. All of the materials draw from the spectacular natural landscapes and authentic places preserved in America’s national parks.

Faleasao Elementary School students enjoy a field trip in Ta'u, led by National Park Rangers Pua Tuaua and Carlo Caruso, about the importance of preserving and protecting their special island.
