From The Nature Conservancy comes Nature Works Everywhere, an educational website launched in 2012 to give "teachers, students and families everything they need to start exploring and understanding nature around the globe." Visitors will find over seventy resources for grades 3-12, ranging from interactive lesson plans to gardening guides, to virtual field trips with accompanying teacher's guides and student handouts. These resources can be filtered by fields such as grade level, Common Core standards, and theme. Readers will also find upcoming live online events, like virtual career fairs, as well as an interactive map showing the locations and statistics of more than 1,000 school gardens that are part of the Nature Works Everywhere community. Those interested in starting a school garden (or one at home) will want to check out the "design" feature, where users can create a plan for their garden and see an estimate of its environmental impact. Nature Works Everywhere also awards grants to K-12 public and charter schools "to support projects that implement green infrastructure to address local environmental challenges."
