It’s Friday, January 24, 2020, and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!

 

Recommended Website:

Photographic Tour of State Parks

(www.usgs.gov/science-support/osqi/yes/national-parks/)

Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

At this website you can take “a photographic and informative tour” of the U.S. National Parks – from Arches to Zion! The photos highlight the geology and natural history of the parks.

When you get to the site, choose the area of the country you’d like to view: 

  • Four Corners Region
  • Northwest
  • Hawaii
  • Southwest
  • Upper-Midwest
  • Northeast
  • Southeast

Click on the area of choice and a new page opens with a list of parks in that area. Then each park has beautiful photographs, a map and text. And each has a Learn More button to dig deeper.

This is a terrific resource for budding geologists – and offers a great way to visit our national parks without leaving home!
