The Camping Trip that Changed America by Barb Rosenstock

Recommended Grades: 3-5

In 1903, John Muir invited President Theodore Roosevelt to join him on a camping trip to discuss the nation’s unprotected wilderness.  A little-known slice of history that forever shaped America’s wilderness. 

Lesson Idea:


Mentor Text: Narrative Nonfiction:  Prior to reading aloud The Camping Trip that Changed America, activate student’s background knowledge on national parks, or protected lands.  Read aloud The Camping Trip that Changed America and discuss how President Theodore Roosevelt and John Muir developed a plan to save America’s wilderness.  Encourage students to continue researching specific national parks they are interested in learning more about.
