Early childhood education is critical to developing well-rounded adults with good critical thinking skills. Research has shown that quality early childhood education has a lasting impact on a child’s entire life – let Growing Up WILD be a part of your early childhood student’s day.
Growing up WILD provides an early foundation for developing positive attitudes and behaviors about nature and life-long social and academic skills. This award-winning early childhood curriculum guide is for educators of children ages 3-7. The guide builds on children’s sense of wonder about nature by providing age appropriate, interdisciplinary lessons. Each thematic lesson includes multiple activities which teach math, reading, letter recognition, science, social studies as well as social-emotional skills.
Growing Up WILD is supported by the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission through the use of funds from hunting licenses and fees.
Nebraska Game and Parks offers a plethora of opportunities beyond events. You can get away and unwind by planning a trip to a Nebraska state park. You can catch the next big one, go wildlife viewing, plan a hunt or more. Or you can help us celebrate our park system’s 100th birthday. Go ahead: Build your own adventure.
