Yellowstone National Park

If you can't get to Yellowstone this summer, make sure you check out all the on-line opportunties. Take a virtual field trip by clicking here. You have a choice of 17 free electronic trips. Visit the Old Faithful Visitor Center by clicking here. You'll start with a flyover of the park finally landing near Old Faithful. You can click here to go to a listing of on-line resources from National Parks. Find videos and photos by clicking here. A series of short, 4 to 22 minute, videos are included along with links to webcams, slide shows and field trips. Click here to view the new Old Faithful streaming webcam. You can also find lots of photos to use in the classroom by clicking here. In fact the photo I used of Barronette Peak was from the 13,000+ collection. The main site which can be accessed by clicking on the title of the post has all the links I mentioned plus more...much more. It's almost as good as being there, but not quite!
