Nature-in-Classroom (NIC)

The NIC program offers one-hour, classroom-only enrichment programs around natural science topics for grades K-5. NIC is a great way to dig a little deeper into something that the class is studying or to present a standards-based environmental education program using our extensive resources (pelts, birds, skulls, tracks, other animal signs, and more!).  They help teachers meet state science standards, while engaging students through inquiry based activities.  

NIC Topics: Animal Signs  |  Buzz on Bees  |  Geology Rock Talk  |  Insect Investigation  |  Discovering Your Senses  |  Fire: A Forest Friend  |  All About Owls  |  Bird Basics  |  Winter Wildlife
