FUN (Finding Urban Nature)
Date: In-school lesson dates will vary by school in October and November.
Time: all lessons are held during school hours.
Location: some Seattle Public Schools
Required in advance: completed FUN application
Finding Urban Nature (FUN) is Seattle Audubon’s free environmental education program in Seattle Public Elementary Schools. FUN introduces 3rd and 4th grade students to the nature in their own schoolyard habitat, and examines how each organism depends on others to survive.
Volunteers lead small groups of four to six students through a series of outdoor investigations, which teach kids to use their senses and scientific practices to discover the importance of urban biodiversity firsthand.
Volunteers devote about two hours a week for four weeks to lead 4-6 students through each lesson, with the support of the school's FUN Team Leader and classroom teachers. No previous teaching or science background is necessary; volunteers must complete an application, attend a training session before going into a school, pass a Washington State background check, and be available to volunteer during school hours.
