In the Classroom
During our initial phase we have focused on building programs for grades 3-5. Don’t teach a 3-5 classroom? Reach out to us! We’re happy to expand our programming to serve a larger audience.
We have also developed a suite of programs aimed at high school environmental science classrooms. These hands-on, argument-driven inquiry experiences get your students out of the classroom and into their environment!
Our programs are designed to be integrated into your pre-existing curriculum. We work with school systems on a case-by-case basis to ensure that our content meets your needs!
Pre- and Post- Instruction
We’re committed to maximizing student impact! Each of our programs includes both pre- and post-instructional content to prime your students before we arrive and reaffirm the lessons once we’ve left.
We are based in Henry County, Georgia and happily serve classrooms and events within a reasonable travel distance. Not sure if you’re within range? Just ask!
Georgia Standards of Excellence
We align our programs to the Georgia Standards of Excellence which were approved in 2016 and implemented in the 2017-2018 school year. As we write, we work to incorporate standards from multiple disciplines including English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Fine Arts.
Who Am I, Where Do I Belong?
Investigating Georgia’s Geographic Regions
What environmental aspects define Georgia’s five geographic regions? How do those aspects dictate which organisms thrive and which perish? How do those organisms respond? Students take the lead in this fast-paced program that puts them to the test. In finding connections between regions, habitats, and adaptations, students will walk away with a thorough understanding of the varied geography of their home state!

Talking Without Words:
How Animals Use Light
and Sound to Communicate
Animals may not speak with words, but that doesn’t mean they don’t communicate! Species all across our planet, from the deep sea to the night sky, have sophisticated “languages” that help them interpret and transmit information. This program begins by exposing students to examples of animal communications that take advantage of the nature of sound and light, and then asks them work in groups to design and build their own “talking” animal capable of receiving and sending information!

Consulting and Continuing Education
We work with school systems at the district level to implement our programs, making it easier for your teachers across the board to bring the outdoor environment into their classroom! We are also available for educator professional development, bringing fresh resources to spark inspiration in the classroom.
