Yellowstone National Park Rangers can Skype with Classrooms!

About this Skype lesson

Classrooms can Skype with a park ranger in Yellowstone National Park to learn more about geology (geysers, hot springs, volcanoes), ecology (fire; wildlife--bears, bison, elk, wolves, etc.), or cultural history (Native American, world's 1st national park, tourism, etc.). Students can interview a park ranger or try to guess which park the ranger is in. Yellowstone has much to share with students around the US and world! Yellowstone is full of science, history and even math (how do you think we predict geysers?).

My 4th grade students have completed units on the regions of the US, including a short lesson on Yellowstone. We are about to embark on a big unit studying the Native Americans from all across the US, and we'd love to learn more about Native Americans in the Yellowstone area as well as some interesting basic info about Yellowstone. None of my students have ever traveled to the area. I would love to set up a time for them to visit with you!
