Are you ready to grow with SEED?
SEED was created by a team of educators at a Nature Center in east central Illinois. Our primary goal of environmental education is to give children experience in nature and teach them about the world around them through environmental education. Our team found a way to combine a school's social-emotional curriculum with environmental education. Below are a series of videos, made by the education team that connects social-emotional curriculum with animals and nature! These videos are published on YouTube and are FREE for anyone to use! You can watch them in any order, but you will need journals for your kiddos! Every video ends with a journal prompt.
How do we use SEED locally? Our local schools use SEED as a supplement to their social-emotional time each week. They watch the videos (usually around 5 minutes) and journal. Younger students may draw their journal prompts, while older will write out their thoughts. The nature center then visits the schools, several times each year to conduct education programs that are science and environmental education focused, but still includes social-emotional learning! Plus, the classes visit the nature center on field trips! It's a win-win! We hope you can get use out of SEED. Subscribe to us on YouTube!
Visit our *NEW* SEED Virtual Woodland Classrooms
While we may not be with you in-person this year, we are still here for you! Whether you are learning at school or home, we have created a Virtual Woodland Classroom to access Douglas-Hart's SEED Curriculum and more! Each SEED video will have its own Google Slides to access the Virtual Woodland Classroom that includes access to the corresponding video, journal prompts, and additional supplemental activities that need little to no supplies! We are also encouraging students to submit their journal entries online. Teachers - you will be able to download the Google Slides and upload them to your own Virtual Classroom for students to complete.
