Description: This session will start with a brief overview of the K-12 resources Acadia National Park has to offer. The discussion will then move into a question and answer period where we find out the interests of the participants. Once we know the content areas and grade levels the participants represent, we will deliver short excerpts of programs we offer as ranger-led electronic field trips and narrated powerpoints. Our electronic field trips are free. Our session will culminate with a discussion about what teachers are looking for this fall and information on free resources and grants offered through the NPS and our partners.
