Professional Development

We all know that getting our students outside and learning is important. However, there are many barriers to getting classrooms outside and engaged meaningful learning experiences.

 

We provide a professional development program titled "How To Develop YOUR Outdoor Learning Strategy" where we train parents on how to effectively, efficiently, and safely integrate outdoor learning into their classroom culture, all while meeting NGSS and Common Core Standards and practicing 12st Century Skills.

Gifted & 2E Students

Do you have students who are super smart, gifted, and/or twice exception?

Practicing STEAM outside provides these kids with a unique experience to take their learning to a deeper level (a lever where they are actually engaged and motivated to learn) while also helping them self-regulate.

 

As teachers, we know that social/emotional learning is ESSENTIAL for gifted kids. In Nature Matters Academy, we make it easy to integrate STEAM, SEL, and nature into your programs.

Higher Order Thinking

“The students had the opportunity to use higher order skills such as graphing and questioning or hands-on skills to create a model. The students were very engaged!”

ABOUT US

Nature Matters Academy provides curriculum and programs for parents and teachers. It was built for kids, with kids.
