Today we are going to start a new project on National Parks, one of our country's greatest resources. Did you know that National Parks belong to all of us? They are full of beautiful scenery, interesting animals, and lots of fun things to do. While most people are familiar with the big National Parks -- liked the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone -- there are also smaller ones that are important to our nation's history. Today you will choose one of these parks and read about it. Before you are finished you will make a SOURCE CARD, which will show what website you plan to use to do your research. Then next week we will start taking notes. We will learn a new process for this. Here are the directions for today: 1. Click on the example and watch the video on National Parks (SLIDE 1) 2. Take the National Park Personality Quiz (SLIDE 2) 3. Go to the "Find a Park" website and either look up the park that matched your personality or find another park to research. Read all about your park. (SLIDE 3) 4. Watch the video about making a source card. (SLIDE 4) 5. Choose the and make your source card on the student template. 6. Tell me what park you are researching on the second slide of the student template.
