2015 - A River Ran Through It
This full-day field trip was run in October 2015 in Partnership with Assiniboine Park Conservancy and as a part of Sustainability Month. In the morning, participants enjoyed an outdoor classroom experience led by Assiniboine Park Conservancy. They explored the Riparian Forest and were guided through a whos who of the flora and fauna. The importance water and water quality to the forest were the focus. In the afternoon, participants put their outdoor learning in action as they engaged in a drama workshop with Green Kids Inc. After warming up with games and exercises, the group imagined a cast of characters and began creating their own plays based on their experience in the forest. Our script for our upcoming play Wild Wild Wilderness will be drawing inspiration for the students' plays.
For grades 4 to 6.
