Field Expedition Parks: Science, History and Service in America’s Parks




Have you visited a park lately? They are living classrooms with a twist. Being out in nature can bring joy to the whole family and why not explore learning at the same time.

Holly shares personal stories and takes you on a journey through several state and national parks. She shares details you might not think of and how you can use them to create meaningful moments with your family. Hands-on activities, book lists, and learning opportunities are included in each of the three units.

  • 10 videos to visit parks in the three learning categories, tutorials, and historical information.
  • Over 100 activity starters to get you motivated to visit your local park and natural resources.
  • 20 activity sheets to print over and again. Use them in different locations and alter them to each visit.
  • Links to learning for parks, historical locations, and information.
  • Build a family nature kit.
  • Create a family first aid kit.
  • Map a year of adventures right where you live with Holly’s system.
  • Beautiful photographs from across the country and multiple families.
  • 65 pages of ready-to-go resources.

You will explore science, history, and service through parks. Topics in this unit include the Great Depression, Civilian Conservation Corp, rocks and minerals, a study of trees, literature and much more.

This unit covers multiple ages and includes the whole family. Geared toward ages 7 to 12.

Use this as a stepping stone to get out and find local areas to explore and complete a unit on science and history. Discover volunteer opportunities across the country.
