Our programming works with our local habitats, community, and seasons as a way to connect the students to their learning. Finding relationships between the months, the equinoxes, and math would be one example. Counting the tadpoles that have shown up in the pond, learning the life cycle of the frog through science and reading, and reinforcing basic phonics through vocabulary like frog, egg, jump, etc
Wild Math® Curriculums cover the typical math skills and standards taught in each grade and provide activities, lessons, and games so that you can take your math instruction outdoors!
Math Units covered: counting and cardinality, place value, patterns and symmetry, beginning addition and subtraction, measurement and data, and geometry.
Wild Reading® integrates outdoor learning, multisensory methods, and an overarching story while providing a strong foundation in key reading skills such as phonological awareness, phonics, and writing.
Wild Reading® Level 1 teaches children the skills they need to learn the connections between letters and letter combinations and sounds and learn to blend them to read words with short vowel, and open syllables.
Project WILD's mission is to provide wildlife-based conservation and environmental education that fosters responsible actions toward wildlife and related natural resources. All curriculum materials are backed by sound educational practices and theory, and represent the work of many professionals within the fields of education and natural resource management from across the country.
Project Learning Tree
Project Learning Tree is an award-winning environmental education program designed for teachers and other educators, parents, and community leaders working with youth from preschool through grade 12. Activities and resources to engage children in learning about the environment through the lens of trees and forests.
Science-based. Content experts review the information, and educators and students field test the materials.
Interactive. Engaging students through questioning and other inquiry-based strategies, educators involve students in hands-on lessons and encourage them to take responsibility for their own learning by:
seeking answers to real-world problems
playing games to explore scientific concepts
reflecting, debating and sharing by creating songs, stories and dramas
Multisensory. Full-body activities engage the senses, which research shows enhances learning.
