Learning Resources

The most effective learning doesn’t happen in a vacuum; it happens when you experience a concept in a variety of ways. The EV may come to a classroom to teach about the environment, but our program is greatly enhanced when it is accompanied by other lessons from the teacher, activities at home with their families, and from other organizations like the EV coming to the same classroom. This section is dedicated to providing more resources for teachers, parents, students, or anyone who loves learning more about the environment to use.

Here are some areas where you can learn more:

Science by Nature

Science By Nature is an innovative website from the Environmental Volunteers in partnership with multiple environmental education providers in the Bay Area. The Science by Nature website makes it easy for teachers to access more fun and engaging hands-on natural science programs for the classroom.

Every teacher knows that students learn best when they work with a concept multiple times in different ways. With Science by Nature, teachers no longer have to spend a lot of time searching for and arranging each program. It is a one-stop shop where educators can sign up for hands-on natural science programs from different organizations in the Bay Area, and the organizations will work with each other to deliver these programs so each reinforces the next.
