National Parks/Planning a trip

Aus ZUM-Unterrichten

Imagine that you are going to have a big class trip to the United States. The class is split in teams of two, three or four.

Your task is to work with the other members of your team and research one of the National Parks to find out the following:

  • Where is your park located? Which state or region?
  • What natural features make this park an interesting place to visit?
    • significant geological and geographic landmarks
    • historical monuments
    • flora and fauna
  • What would visitors enjoy doing and seeing while they are there?
    • educational activities
    • spare time activities
  • Give some fun facts and records

Make a presentation about your National Park.

It should last about 20 minutes (in English) and include pictures, general information and a quiz for the other students.

For your presentation you can either create a slideshow (PowerPoint, OpenOffice Impress, Prezi), a learning path, a website or draw a poster.
