We are so grateful that you are embarking on this 3-month educational experience with Origins! Origins Curriculum offers a magical exploration into global education for classroom & homeschool educators. Join us in our year-long, virtual and nature-based learning curriculum.

Mindfulness • Nature-Led & Eco-Conscious • Global Education • Research-Based Online Learning

Origins is an adventure into global education, and hits all the required domains of learning and covers every subject taught in public school plus more! Students will dive into each global biome and learn about the regions in depth.

They will learn about the original peoples, the flora and the fauna, about environmental concerns, economics, water cycles, weather patterns, food systems, soil types and how the regions are connected to the greater global web. These topics will be explored through the lenses of reading, mathematics, science, social studies, language arts, music and art and more, all the while weaving in eco- literacy and mindfulness.

Origins students will develop critical-thinking skills toward solving real-world problems like climate change, while gaining confidence in their identity, meaning, and purpose.

Below outlines the curriculum you will receive for each month throughout the year:
