Nature Revealed Full Cover

Nature Revealed is a diverse collection of learning experiences that help young children discover the relationship between nature and everyday living. Nature Revealed focuses on hands-on learning with 89 seasonally based activities organized through 15 learning blocks which include: music, art, reading, writing, math, science, music, outside, pretend play, nutrition, manipulatives, group, large-motor, blocks, and field trip. 

The teacher guide meets Missouri Early Learning Standards (MELS) and Project Construct. Nature Revealed is endorsed by the DESE Office of Childhood as an Approved Preschool Supplemental Science Curriculum. Clock hours are available through a free training. Contact your local conservation educator to request a workshop. 

Both teachers and parents can use the activities to stimulate children's sense of wonder through the provided storyboard characters and puzzles, as well as other learning block activities. Preschoolers will learn important lessons including:

  • Fall 9 Nature Jar: Collect seeds and find their value to people and wildlife
  • Winter 8 Track Puzzles: Match animal with their tracks.
  • Spring 8 Explore a Log: Discover how decomposed trees contribute to soil
  • Summer 10 Jo's Choice: Explore the meaning of "conservation"

The teacher guide also has fun activities like the Family Calendar of Activities, and Thematic Lesson Plans. These lessons support preschoolers observing and respecting nature, which can help Missouri children become conservationists for life.
