Classe nature à Trout Lake – 26 avril – Annexe Maquinna
We are transporting the whole school to Trout Lake to learn outside for the day. Our K to 2 students will be reorganised in subgroups and will rotate through stations in the park to learn about the senses. They will use their sight to find hidden treasures on the beach, use their smell to try to recognize familiar scents, use their ears to reproduce rythmes with sticks, and use their touch to feel the different textures of bark. The afternoon will be split between outside yoga and a big reenactment game about bird migrations (with the help of our Wild School rep). We do this four times a year, rain or shine!
Date and time
CSF – Annexe Maquinna
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.
