Themes of the Living classroom curriculum
A Nature Detective lesson begins each of our fall courses. The senses of sight, sound, smell and touch are used to deepen observation skills while interacting with nature. Nature Detective lessons align with NGS Standards in each grade level, as categorized below, but can be presented to children from Pre-K to 5th grade.
Lessons in the Ecosystem Study Theme follows our Nature Detective lessons, presented in the fall. Ecosystem Study Lessons present the relationships between the living and non-living, the consumers and producers, and the decomposers in an ecosystem help children understand the interdependencies in nature, and why each is important. The Ecosystem Study series can be presented from Pre-K through 4th grade and align to NGS Standards.
Presented in winter months, our Private Eye series bring inquisitive thinking skills into the LCLL course progression. To think metaphorically about the lessons learned and to wonder why are primary tenants of our Private Eye series of lessons. The Private Eye series can be presented from Pre-K through 5th grade and align to NGS Standards.
