Nature’s lesson in resilience for all of us
April 26 8:00 am
We will go outside and have a discussion on the meaning of resilience. We will discuss why this is an important attribute to possess. As a group, we will discuss people we feel who have shown resilience. Then, we will go out and explore our campus looking for evidence of nature showing true resilience. For example, I know of one tree that was cut down a number of years ago. The stump has been sawed through to create a chair. However, the tree is growing back and shoots are appearing right at the base of the “chair”…
Date and time
April 26 8:00 am
4176 Alexandra St
Vancouver, V6J 2V6 Canada
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.
