Keeping the Wild in Sight

 

Teachers, we know you’re all superheroes! In light of an education model turned upside down, you came up with plans, scheduled classes and taught students with grace and gusto through a time of great uncertainty.

We want to help you navigate a new school year with solid resources to help bring your students into nature. Research shows that students fare better mentally, physically and emotionally when they’re outside, and outdoor learning is proving a safer option these days too. We have dozens of lesson plans, videos, art ideas and more to help you get your students learning from, and in, the great outdoors.

Like the great Dr. Seuss said, “It’s opener there, in the wide open air.”

Find nature-based curriculum in the left hand column for students from Kindergarten to Grade 7. The focus is on promoting student connectivity to the wild, allowing students to explore the natural world in which we live, and guiding them to grow in their understanding and care for the environment.

Here’s an example of a lesson plan: Playing with Patterns, for students from Kindergarten to Grade 2:

Wildsight thanks Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Power Corporation, Consecon Foundation, Crowsnest Conservation Society, Fortis BC, Osprey Community Foundation, Teck Coal, Teck Trail, the Province of British Columbia and all of our individual donors for making this program possible.
