Plus, two new courses with Rudy Mancke, renowned SC Naturalist:
- Natural History in North America & Beyond, Series I
- Natural History in North America & Beyond, Series II
Description of new courses: Series I and Series II highlight the four regions of the United States – the Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest. In each series, we learn about the biodiversity of the area, looking at the distinctive geography and the great 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 that students can relate to anywhere in the world. Award-winning “NatureScene” programs produced on location provide a rich, up-close experience with unprecedented access and exceptional photography. And, Naturalist Mancke conveys additional information in separate compact content segments to extend, reinforce and connect. (Two other Series III and Series IV, are planned to be added later 2020. Series III focuses on South Carolina and Series IV on other highlights across our country, plus a variety of areas beyond our borders.)
