The Piedmont Edition of “Your Backyard Classrooms” makes it easy, fun and rewarding for you and your students, grades K-12, to use the many State Parks in Virginia’s Piedmont region. The program, which incorporates the State Standards of Learning, contains 37 activities, which address a variety of subjects, issues and concepts. The activities are designed to involve students before, during and after a field trip and help them develop a range of critical science process skills. Although each activity includes concise step-by-step procedures, group leaders are encouraged to mix, match and adapt activities in order to customize the outdoor learning experience to better meet their own instructional goals.
