Learners will visit a state park of their choice and explore the significance and history of the area. The learner will research when and why the park was added into the State Park System. The learner will also learn about the wildlife and plant life, through their exploration, and why the state park they selected is important to the conservation of natural resources and integrate this newfound knowledge into their classroom through the development of a unit plan.
