Nature's CornerNature's Corner is a series of digital slide shows that will help students to get to know their local environment. The topics include information and photos about insects, plants, birds, trees, mammals, animal tracking, and animal homes. The text has also been recorded for non readers. One of the program, called Minnesota History Through Time, is about the geologic history of Minnesota. While another program is about the history (geologic, and local history) of Lake Minnetonka. In addition, Nature's Corner also has a global perspective. There are programs on whales, coral reefs, and seals. In addition to the programs there are student worksheets, in which students will read the material and respond to questions. Lastly, there is a photo library available for students to use photos for reports. Nature's Corner will help students connect the technological world with the natural world.
