Natural Habitat Unit

You and your children can become naturalists by observing the changes in nature in your own backyard. We want to inspire a lifelong appreciation for the natural world and what better way than to start right where you are!

This lesson will get your feet wet with the great outdoors by starting right outside your back door.

  • Your family will create a backyard/front yard habit for wildlife.
  • You will also have the option of getting your own backyard certified through the National Wildlife Federation.

Pond Life and Frogs Science unit

Experiential learning comes alive with this pond life and frogs science curriculum. Math, art, marine life, plant life, and organisms, along with fun activities bring this unit to life for your children. Everyday living can provide an amazing education for multiple ages.

Butterfly Unit

Bring butterflies to your own backdoor with our butterflies science curriculum. This simple, easy-to-follow module will give you the confidence to bring wonder and curiosity to your family with one plant.

This unit is marked “not-so-outdoorsy” because you can do many of the experiments inside your home and read the wonderful books we recommend until you are ready for the outdoor experiments.
