With this announcement, the company emphasizes the benefits of adding nature studies to a homeschool curriculum. In addition to offering broad opportunities for hands-on interdisciplinary learning, covering biology, ecology, zoology, and more, interaction with nature positively impacts physical and mental health. In a survey of over 600 children aged 13-18 conducted by The Nature Conservancy in the USA, 90% reported that being outdoors left them feeling “less stressed”.
Running Wild Explorers’ program is divided into seasonal modules. During each month, children will learn a new nature subject and a new survival skill. With the addition of survival skills to its nature study curriculum, the company aims to help children develop a deeper connection with the natural world, feel confident in unexpected situations, and be more resilient and physically fit.
Games and experiments ensure that children practice the skills they have learned; and the lessons are illustrated with interesting facts and jokes, keeping young learners engaged. The curriculum also includes various creative assignments, such as journaling, photography, and crafts, fostering curiosity and a love of nature.
In addition to 100 pages of lesson materials, participants get access to videos, websites, and other interactive resources specific to the topic of the lesson. Children are also awarded buttons for each survival skill learned, which improves motivation and learning outcomes.
The company encourages parents to download a complimentary lesson to find out more about the structure of the course. The lesson is available at https://runningwildexplorers.com/complimentary-lesson
