NEW courses with Naturalist Rudy Mancke

Both courses highlight the 4 regions of the U.S. as we learn about the biodiversity of each area, looking at the distinctive geography and the variety of plant and animal life forms along with their remarkable habitats to understand how they are connected. This study allows K-12 educators to integrate Natural History into their teaching, making connections students can relate to anywhere in the world. Award-winningNatureSceneprograms provide a rich, up-close experience with unprecedented access and exceptional photography. Naturalist Mancke conveys additional information in separate segments to extend, reinforce and connect.

Series III highlights areas in South Carolina. Rudy again relates the biodiversity, looking at distinctive geography and the plant and animal life forms along with their remarkable habitats.
