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.
