Into the Outdoors - Videos and Lesson Plans About Nature

Into the Outdoors is a new site featuring videos and lesson plans about a wide variety of topics related to nature. The site is divided into six main topic areas; life science, farm science, social science, physical science, environmental science, and natural resources science. Each primary topic area includes a handful of sub-topics. Click on any sub-topic to find videos, lesson plans, and links to additional resources. Below I've embedded two videos from the Life Science section.



Applications for Education
In the email that I received from Into the Outdoors they mentioned that one of their purposes is to spark students' interest in learning about nature and getting outside to learn. In looking at a few of the lessons, I can see how you could modify them to use on local walking field trips.
