These programs are developed to reflect the resources found at Ludington State Park. These resources--both historical and natural--tie in with other resources found throughout the Great Lakes Region.
Objectives are to inspire, illuminate, develop observation skills and imagination, and be enjoyable. We strive to inspire students to be interested in what is happening in nature around them, whether it is in the schoolyard, in a park setting, or just in the backyard at home, and have fun with the adventures of discovery!
The following in-classroom programs are offered to school groups from October through April. Call 231-843-9261 to schedule a date and time for a Park Interpreter to visit your classroom. In-classroom programs last approximately 45 minutes.
(4th grade - adult)
Michigan Rocks is a fun program that gets students to think about what a stone or rock means to them when they are outdoors. That rock they pick up or look at in their schoolyard or anywhere else holds a wealth of information. It is a science lesson and history lesson wrapped in this hard natural form.
Rocks tell us stories just like science and history books tell stories. Students will learn how to unlock these stories by observing and feeling rocks. They'll discover that our Great Lakes State has not always looked as it does today. This program can be done either in the park or as an outreach program in the classroom.
