Audubon introduces young people, their families and their teachers to the fundamental principles by which the natural world functions. The lessons that Audubon Adventures teaches offer an exciting, science-based exploration of those principles at work anchored in nonfiction reading and outdoor and classroom activities that help kids to care for the planet by helping birds and other wildlife.
The Audubon Adventures materials were developed by professional educators, are designed for students in grades 3 through 8 and integrate easily into the existing curriculum areas of science, social studies, mathematics, language arts and creative arts. Audubon Adventures has been used in classrooms, after-school programs/clubs, camp programs, ESL classes and more.
