The Nature Conservancy and its 550 scientists have created Nature Lab to help students learn the science behind how nature works for us and how we can help keep nature running strong. Nature Lab gives teachers, students and families everything they need to start exploring and understanding nature’s fantastic factory including videos, digital tools, and interactive lesson plans that align to standards.
Nature Lab helps children learn about conserving nature for its own sake and for its ability to fulfill their needs and enrich their lives. Modules aligned with education standards focus on conservation issues such as how climate change impacts our lives and the role of healthy fire in forests. High-quality videos transport students to diverse landscapes such as Borneo, Canada and China. Interviews with renowned scientists offer youth a chance to see themselves as agents of change while exploring acoustic technology, the knowledge of Indigenous Peoples and the need for green energy. Easy-to-use learning guides encourage students to make a difference in their own communities.
