Natural Curiosity Handbook

Environmental Inquiry

Natural Curiosity is a teacher resource that was launched in 2011. It's focus is on Environmental Inquiry, and how to bring inquiry-based teaching practices into the classroom. The resource offers elementary school teachers a guide to making both the content and process of learning about the world more engaging and relevant to their students. This is possible when students become personally invested in a collective learning process that is shaped by their very own questions and theories about the world - their natural curiosity - and a process that places them in direct contact and relationship with the natural environment.
