War in the Pacific National Historical Park Standards’ Based Learning

Historic sites are excellent places for studying local and national events, the impact of people, technological change, and political and social trends.  They also teach us how locale, terrain, and climate affect events and lives, and how people shape the environment for their purposes. Pacific Historic Parks produced standards-based curriculum activities for teachers and parents alike to explore these treasured place-based resources with their students and children. Step outside and enjoy the outdoors at War in the Pacific National Historical Park sites, which offer a unique focus for a lesson in history, geography, science, and many other subjects in the school curriculum.
