The Most Dangerous Game – A short story study on Gambier Island
Each year our whole school heads to Gambier Island to learn outdoors. Our classes complete different activities depending on their grade level. At the grade 7/8 level students will read Richard Connell’s short story “The Most Dangerous Game” and complete a place based mapping and creative thinking project.
Date and time
Coast Mountain Academy
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.
