For a variety of societal reasons, including an increase in the proportion of people living in suburban or urban areas, many children have little contact with the natural world. Native flora and fauna are foreign to them. To be able to bridge the gap between nature and the classroom I've devised lessons for grade-school children that can include hands-on learning.
As a Conservation Biologist the lessons devised are scientifically based under the premise that all life has intrinsic value. The lessons are organized in such a way to appeal to the children's senses, keep their attention while showing enthusiasm for nature. Some of the subjects used for lessons in the past are listed to the right.
