New Jersey Audubon embraces the notion that learning about the environment and all its facets is best done using an integrative approach that relies heavily on hands-on, experiential learning. Our curricula are place-based and cross-disciplinary and designed to meet the needs of teachers by supporting existing state standards. While strong in science and social studies, lessons utilize math and language skills as well as other areas of study including the arts and technology.
Likewise we also feel strongly that it is essential for children to learn about the place they live. To that end all of our materials are New Jersey-specific and provide not only lessons to teach concepts and skills to students, but appropriate background information for the teacher.
