If you’re in Hawaii, visit the probably the most active Volcano in the world – Kilauea Volcano, part the the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.  The hot thing to do is visit a live lava flow.  It’s the coooolest thing you can do.

Real Hot, be careful… Aloha!

Teach Green with U.S. National Parks – Free Kids WebRanger Program

U.S. National Parks Service

The U.S. National Parks service has come up with an excellent learning tool for parents and children called WebRangers. It’s a great way to teach children to read, think green, and learn about nature; other categories include history, animals, parks, puzzles, science, and people. It was  fun doing the games and learning at the same time.
