The Naturalist
PROGRAM CURRICULUM
Students will unpack the Naturalist’s valise, and analyze how each object represents a naturalist’s mission of exploration and discovery. Students will discuss the accomplishments – literary, scientific and historical -- of important naturalists, such as Lewis and Clark, Ralph Waldo Emerson and John Muir. Finally, the lesson will turn to art, as students explore similarities between a naturalist and an artist, both individuals that observe, question and record the world around them.
