Bodie State Historic Park. Teacher's Guide.
California State Dept. of Parks and Recreation, Sacramento.
This guide is intended to assist teachers in organizing and preparing a field trip to Bodie State Historic Park (California). Although it is intended to assist in the trip to Bodie, it also provides information for organizing group tours or family outings to other areas. Activities include before, during, and after visit exercises focusing on the history of Bodie, a boom town of 1877 with gold and silver mining, then a ghost town that became a state historic park in 1962 to preserve, protect, and interpret its history and legacy for future generations. Bodie is the only California State Park representing the high desert mountain landscape in the Great Basin Region. (EH)
