NATURE Online is the Web companion to a broadcast series where visitors can stream full episodes of NATURE programs, watch behind-the-scenes videos with filmmakers and producers (also available at iTunes), view program excerpts (also available on YouTube), and find fun interactive content, teacher lesson plans, and more. The videos are segmented, tagged and provided with user comments. Thirteen has a separate tab "For Educators" where it collects its educational materials available free of charge to the elementary and middle school teachers in America. These include a Teacher’s Guide, classroom poster, DVD of select NATURE episodes, and take-home activities. A NATURE comic book for children ages 10 to 12, also free, is distributed through retail outlets, education centers and museums nationwide, including the American Museum of Natural History.
