In 4th grade we have been studying one of my favorite things, the National Parks. After researching / reviewing climate, Native American history, European exploration, and previewing ecosystems the students will use Green Screen by Do Ink and Aurasma to create videos about their chosen NPS site.
Fourth-graders and their families can visit all of the NPS sites for free this school-year through the "Every Kid in a Park" program. The students are taking home their passes before the holiday break, and I hope you all can explore some of our local parks (Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield, or Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site). I'll be out west for the holidays and hiking around both Death Valley and Joshua Tree.
