Nature's Partners is an inquiry learning-based curriculum for young people in the 4th through the 6th grade. It is comprised of seven modules. Each module offers three or four activities designed to engage young people in active, investigative science following a learning cycle of

- concept application.
The Nature's Partners curriculum is designed to be flexible. Although it is presented as a sequence of activities, there is no need to do them all or todo them in order.
