The Nature of Teaching informal curriculum is not standards-based and is more activity-focused than the formal curriculum. It was designed for nonformal educators who work in places like nature centers and host field days and 4-H clubs. The curriculum includes five 20-30 minute lessons that correspond with the nature-based curriculum topics of wildlife, mental health, nutrition, and physical activity.

Youth and families explore basic survival needs of humans and wildlife by drawing their own homes and neighborhoods. The awareness game is fun to play as a family to help build neural networks while using natural objects and getting outdoors.
