Observing and learning about the importance of pollinators fosters a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of living things and their environment, while cultivating a profound desire to conserve and protect our delicate ecosystem.
Each one of our Junior Naturalist week-long lesson plans takes kids outside with daily outdoor learning assignments that involve a wide variety of educational disciplines, including art, science, engineering, and more, providing families with well-rounded, nature, based STEM curriculum.
Our Pollinators and Garden Observation lesson plan equips children with the tools they need to discover what’s happening in their own backyard, through thoughtful examination, discussion prompts, building projects, and more.
