The National Park Service (NPS) helps teachers use the world’s first national park to bring science, mathematics, and social studies to life. Classrooms can connect with a Yellowstone National Park ranger to learn more about geology (geysers, hot springs, volcanoes), ecology (wildlife, predator/prey, fire, habitats, adaptations), or cultural history, and the National Park Service mission of preservation. During a 20- to 40-minute live program, students can learn about careers by interviewing a park ranger. They can also participate in a “Mystery” geography challenge to determine where the park ranger works.
