In this two-part virtual and in-person program, students will observe, record and explore the natural habitat around them. Starting with a virtual session, students will be introduced to the Nature Exchange process and will continue this exploration with provided in-class activities.
Then, when your class visits the Science Centre, students will get the chance to apply their skills in Coronation Park. The program wraps-up with students trading their knowledge for a Nature Exchange artefact.
Students will have one virtual session first followed by an in-person session at the TELUS World of Science - Edmonton.
This program consists of:
- One 45 minute virtual session introduction to the program,
- Optional classroom activities that are self-led, AND
- One 45 minute in-person session* at TELUS World of Science - Edmonton for outdoor activities and a trade with the Nature Exchange gallery.
Supplies required for virtual session:
- Journal or loose-leaf paper
Students should have a pencil and a journal for the virtual session. They can use loose-leaf paper if needed but there is a benefit in keeping all their observations together. They will use the journal for later activities.
*NOTE: In-person session will be outdoors. Students, teachers, and volunteers will need to dress accordingly.
This program will be tailored to meet your grade-specific needs.
