Wild Wild Wilderness
The Canadian School Tour
Coming to Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario in Fall 2018
Stay tuned for more information on how your school or event can book this program free of charge.
Wild Wild Wilderness is a program that demonstrates the connections between habitat, wildlife, and human activity. The purpose of this project is to celebrate our wilderness areas while empowering young people to make positive choices towards protecting them.
This program will show and encourage an understanding and empathy for the plants, animals, and people we don't see who are affected by our actions. The program's academic and environmental focus is on habitat and wildlife conservation, and enjoying the outdoors.
Our time at your school will begin with a 25-minute show for all Kindergarten to Grade 4 students. From there, we pack up and are ready to visit two individual classrooms for a 30-minute workshop.
The Play is a dynamic and whacky story of one kid's accidental effect on a nearby forest and its creatures, performed by a single actor/storyteller and armfuls of adorable puppets. The Workshop is an interactive drama class that gets kids, teachers and parents exploring the animals, forest, people and issues from the story with their bodies and imaginations.
CLASSROOM ECO-DRAMA WORKSHOPS
Inspired by the Science Curriculum, Green Kids' love of theatrics, and Mother Nature herself, these workshops will lead students on an exploration of what those 3 Rs really mean, and how young and old, can make them part of their everyday lives.
We currently have 6 workshops to offer to Winnipeg Schools:
- Trace Elements
- Wild Wild Wilderness
- Back to Basics ~ Those 3 Rs
- Back to Nature
- Ebb & Flo ~ The Water Cycle
