Making Connections. A Curriculum and Activity Guide to Mammoth Cave National Park. [Grades] 4-5.
National Park Service (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
The National Park Service originated with the passage of the Organic Act of 1916. Since then the National Park Service and the U.S. government have designated many places to be protected, either because of their historical significance or natural significance to the nation. In Kentucky, Mammoth Cave National Park is one of four national parks. Each National Park Service area has its own unique cultural, biological, and geological significance. Cultural heritage (people), vegetation (plants), wildlife (animals), and landforms (rocks) are the reasons the parks were set aside. This multidisciplinary activity guide for Mammoth Cave National Park is for students in grades 4 and 5. The guide provides detailed instructions for implementation of the diverse activities. It is divided into three charts: (1) "Subject Chart"; (2) "Setting Chart"; and (3) "KERA Goals Chart"; and 10 activities: (1) "Plotting Protected Places"; (2) "Exploring Emblems"; (3) "Acorn Mix-Up"; (4) "Case of the Mysterious Rocks"; (5) "Current Song"; (6) "Clear as Mud"; (7) "Kentucky Capsules"; (8) "In Remembrance"; (9) "Findings from the Field"; and (10) "Cover All!"
