The Nature of Teaching - Wildlife

This video explains the importance of getting kids involved with nature. The Nature of Teaching workshops provide K-5 teachers with lesson plans that incorporate nature into standards-based curriculum. This allows for teachers to meet the requirements set for by the state and federal government while getting kids outside and interacting with their environment. For more information, check out our 2018 Workshops page.
