Distance Learning

Combined Shape Copy Created with Sketch.

NatureBridge invites you and your 3rd through 6th grade students to learn and explore in our reimagined virtual classroom. With a NatureBridge educator as your guide, students will participate in interactive lessons that connect them to environmental science, national parks and the natural world in their own community. 

Each lesson will integrate science and social and emotional learning while ensuring equitable and inclusive experiences for all students. Programs are structured so that students can:

  • Practice scientific inquiry skills
  • Understand interconnections in the natural world
  • Value environmental stewardship
  • Engage in fun, interactive activities to promote learning and movement
  • Feel empowered to ask questions and think critically 
  • Develop an interest in science and the outdoors

NatureBridge is committed to helping teachers and families provide opportunities for 3rd through 6th grade students to participate in activity-based, collaborative science explorations of national parks and their communities. We hope to see you in our virtual classroom soon!

Teacher Testimonials

We have attended several classes and "field trips" this year... This was far and away the best experience we've had all year. You really figured out how to adapt to the virtual environment well AND your staff is phenomenal, as always. I had students who rarely speak during class who shared multiple times in your classes, and the other teachers said the same thing happened in theirs. Thank you!
