Immersive Programs

War in the Pacific National Historical Park

War in the Pacific National Historical Park preserves former World War II battlefield landscapes of Guam from the offshore waters, to the landing beaches, to the high ground – all places that youth can explore to understand their island’s rich history and culture. Young children become immersed in park themes through song, story, and art. Literacy skills are enhanced through reading books focused on the people, places, and events of World War II. The park’s habitats support a diversity of life that can be explored from ridge to reef. Middle school students analyze memorials and monuments to discover the impact of World War II. History comes to life at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center when high school students become historical figures while cultivating a sense of civic engagement. Join the Pacific Historic Parks Education Department as they share compelling stories through programs and provide unique opportunities to connect visitors to park resources.
