Program DescriptionThe FUN program introduces 3rd grade students to the nature in their schoolyard habitat and examines how diversity and interdependence aid survival. Volunteers lead small groups of four to seven students through a series of outdoor investigations, which teach kids to use their senses and scientific practices to discover the importance of urban biodiversity firsthand. Four lessons in the fall and four more in the spring give students the opportunity to build knowledge and observe seasonal changes in their schoolyard habitats.
