14460 • Using National Park Resources to Enhance Science and Social Studies Skills-Ocracoke

Designed for teachers of grades 58.

Which of our state’s national parks is home to over 12,000 documented species of plants, animals and invertebrates? In which park can you walk in the footsteps of Revolutionary War patriots? North Carolina is home to ten national park units stretching from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Cape Hatteras shores. These parks offer diverse opportunities to spark students’ desire to learn more about the rich science and history of our state. Discover how park resources, including informational texts and supplemental materials, can also enhance literacy skills. Learn ways your students can experience our parks both physically and virtually. Partner with national park rangers, historians and science experts to create lessons that will engage student learning in your classroom.
