I am a big – – did I say big? – – I meant GIANT supporter of National Parks and Historic Sites. I believe strongly in preserving as much of our natural beauty and heritage as is humanly possible. One of my bigger goals in life is visiting each of the National Parks within the United States, and let me tell you…I’ve got very few under my belt currently, so I hope I better have inherited some of my grandparents longevity genes if I’m going to make it!
In the meantime, however, there are plenty of ways to visit some of these terrific places “virtually.” Many of the below sites are really educational, and some even include lesson plans and ideas for integrating the information into your curriculum. So take a few minutes and take a virtual National Park field trip. And if you have gotten to take a spectacular in-person visit to one of our National Parks or Historic Sites, I would LOVE to live vicariously through you…so post about it in the comments section, please!
