    Growing Up WILD is an early childhood education curriculum that builds on children’s sense of wonder about nature, and invites them to explore wildlife and the outdoor world around them. Through a wide range of activities and experiences, Growing Up WILD provides an early foundation for developing positive impressions about the natural world and lifelong social and academic skills.

    This curriculum is written especially for early childhood providers of children ages 3-7, and includes over 400 ready-made thematic units on outdoor explorations, scientific inquiry, art projects, music and movement, conservation activities, reading and math connections. The included activity guide makes it very easy to use this curriculum!
