Natural History in North America & Beyond, Series IV, the fourth course in a series of ETV Teacher Recertification online courses with renowned Naturalist Rudy Mancke, focuses on the Natural History of North America and beyond our borders. This course highlights other areas across our nation and areas in Canada, Costa Rica and Russia. We examine the biodiversity of the area, looking at the distinctive geography and the great variety of plant and animal life forms along with their remarkable habitats to understand how they are connected. Award-winning NatureScene programs produced on location in the United States and other countries provide a rich, up-close experience with unprecedented access and exceptional photography. Naturalist Mancke conveys additional information in separate compact content segments to extend, reinforce and connect. This study will allow K-12 educators to integrate Natural History into their teaching, making connections students can relate to anywhere in the world.
