Audubon Adventures is an environmental education curriculum product created by the National Audubon Society for grades 3 - 5. Developed by professional environmental educators, Audubon Adventures presents standards-based science content about birds, wildlife, and their habitats.
Audubon Adventures introduces young people, their families, and their teachers to the fundamental principles by which the natural world functions. Our print publications and website offer an exciting, science-based exploration of those principles at work anchored in nonfiction reading and outdoor and classroom activities that help kids to care for our planet by helping birds and other wildlife.
Audubon Adventures is used in classrooms, home schools, after-school programs, camp programs, ESL classes, and more.
Our content-rich website www.audubonadventures.org provides interactive games, puzzles, and quizzes and topic-related resources for both teachers and students.
Since its inception in 1984, over 7 million youngsters have participated in the program.
Audubon Adventures can be easily integrated into the existing curriculum areas of science, social studies, mathematics, language arts, and creative arts. The only requirement for implementing Audubon Adventures in your classroom, home, or community is an interest in exploring, learning about, and enjoying the natural world around you.
Audubon envisions a future with a community of enlightened and informed citizens aware of the environmental consequences of their daily activities. It is a community with the knowledge, skills, and resources to make informed choices among alternative courses of action that result in minimizing negative effects on our shared environment.
When we achieve the goals we set for Audubon Adventures, young people have the foundation necessary for recognizing our individual and collective responsibility for the health of our environment. And out of that recognition comes understanding that personal actions can have meaningful, positive, and far-reaching effects.
