Ready to dig a little deeper into environmental education? Project WILD is an interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education program that helps youth develop the awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment needed to make informed decisions and take action for the environment. Throughout this hands-on workshop, we’ll demonstrate a variety of activities and tools that you can use to teach about wildlife, habitat and water.
Where do dragonflies go when the snow flies? What keeps wood frogs from croaking in winter? Most Canadians live with snow and ice for at least five months of the year, yet we know surprisingly little about life in frozen environments. Join us for an amazing sub-zero safari into the winter world of wildlife and discover new ways to engage students in hands-on experiential learning during the winter months!
By taking part you will receive:
- two professional development certificates to add to your resume
- a print copy of our Project guide filled with 146 interdisciplinary resources, lessons, and activities on topics ranging from adaptation to food webs, migration, the water cycle and much more!
- a copy of the Below Zero activity guide filled with 46 curriculum-based lesson plans and games for teaching in winter!
