Kids spend 50% less time outdoors than they did 20 years ago.
We want to change that.
Why Anim8Nature? Why now?
Anim8Nature is a series of documentary animations and activities
that inform children
about the facts of life-science in a creative way.
We want to help kids understand their world.
Our mission is to spark curiosity, guide children to explore
science with art and get kids outside.
Join us exploring science
with art and storytelling.
Life Cycle Animations
Students, teachers and families work with iPads and traditional art tools to document and animate the natural world. A website gallery celebrates the kids work expanding their understanding of science with art.
We are developing lesson plans for each animation designed to explore science with art and writing while meeting important learning goals and science standards. We want kids to take advantage of the process artists and scientists share in creative problem solving.
We want to help communities engage with nature in yards and parks in their neighborhoods and beyond. We will provide links by locale to organizations that provide outdoor activities.
What teachers are saying about Anim8Nature:
Science and art can inspire kids to deepen their understanding
of who we are and our place on Earth.
Anim8Nature is built on facts, research, storytelling,
technical expertise, and visual flair.
Documentary animations can serve as
curiosity bursts for young children.
