Do you and your children long to travel and see the World? Have you considered checking out some of the amazing sites in America first? There is so much here to see and explore in our very own country. Visiting a national park is an amazing way to get up close to nature and see things you would not normally encounter every day in your city or town.
Yellowstone National Park is the first National Park that was established in the United States of America. If you are wanting to learn more about this amazing place you will enjoy these free resources for discovering Yellowstone National Park!
Yellowstone National Park was established in 1872. It is mainly located in Wyoming, but it extends over to Montana and Idaho. A park that covers 3 states is pretty large! It has over 2 million acres of wilderness and wildlife to be explored.
Yellowstone is most famous for its waterfalls, boiling mud pots, interesting geothermal activity and Old Faithful, a large geyser that erupts like clockwork daily. It is home to grizzly and black bears, many species of birds, and small creatures as well as packs of wolves, and thousands of wild bison.
If you love beautiful, natural wonders, and wildlife, Yellowstone should definitely be on your bucket list to visit with your family one day.
I have always wanted to visit Yellowstone National Park since I was a little girl. My husband visited with his family when he was a child, and he still talks about what an amazing trip it was. He has wonderful memories of what they saw when they were there and said he’ll never forget it. Unfortunately, it is a cross country trip for us, and just seems unattainable at the moment. Luckily, there are so many amazing videos, websites, books, and studies that can help you feel like you are really there.
I think your children will really love doing a unit study on Yellowstone National Park and the animals and wonders that reside there.
