Nature Matters ACADEMY
Nature Matters Academy is a K-12 STEM-based curriculum for getting kids outside and
learning about nature in their own backyards. Kids practice STEM skills and
build STEM confidence while developing a personal connection with nature.
Every lesson plan includes fun, engaging, and hands-on activities that kids, parents, and teachers love! All the supplies you need can be found at home or in your classroom.
We think outside the box of traditional classrooms by getting kids outside. In a classroom, distractions are a problem. Outside, they become a teachable moment.
Our lessons build STEM skills and confidence, encourage critical thinking, and incorporate opportunities for kids to read, write, draw, and reflect on
what they learn.
So much of nature education focuses on ecosystems
half-way across the world.
Not us! Each lesson is designed so kids learn about nature in their own backyards.
