An outdoor experience for a GVRD classroom
April 22 8:00 am
As part of Wild About Vancouver, I invite local classrooms/schools to get in touch if they would like me to come and visit their school. I will come to the first three schools that reach out, at an agreed upon date/time between April 22-25, 2019.
Some examples of lessons I have done with schools in the past:
Noticing walks- forest, field, neighbourhood
Meter squared noticing field lab
Tarp and shelter building
Map and compass
I am familiar with the BC Curriculum and we would discuss ways to ensure alignment with broader learning aims.

Date and time
April 22 8:00 am
The event will be located in Vancouver
There will be no fee for participants
There will be an educational component that invites participants to take something away that they can enact elsewhere (school, home, community-centre, etc.) and share their experience with others
Lessons will be offered by teachers/educators. They will be closed events that only the teacher and students participate in. Different classes many join up for a lesson, or even different schools and grade levels may collaborate for an outdoor lesson. Outdoor lessons are a chance to share what you are currently doing outdoors with other teachers/educators.
For lessons, WAV will share your outdoor teaching with other teachers/educators to help inspire them to take their teaching outdoors and offer some ideas about the range of learning that can happen outdoors.
