Locally Based Environmental Education Resources Available During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Saltwater-Wedge
At the moment our schools and educational institutions are closed to the general public. This means that there are many hands and minds that need to be kept busy. For those of you that have young ones at home or are just looking to find some mental stimulation while in self- isolation Project Watershed has some educational resources for you to enjoy.

Our resources can be found at https://projectwatershed.ca/glacier-to-estuary/. They include lesson plans, activities, experiments, colouring pages, short educational videos and presentations. Please note that due to social distancing field trips are not available at this time. We do have our Signs of Abundance Tour, which pairs ecological information with locations around the estuary, and our Interactive Estuary Map. A mapping activity, The K’ómoks Estuary Map Quest, has been created for the Interactive Map and is tailored for students in grade 3 to 6.

For younger minds with even busier hands, Hand-in-Hand education is posting educational games and activities for preschoolers on their website https://hand-in-handeducation.com/kid-friendly-nature-activities/.

The best part about all these resources is that they are actually available sans pandemic so you can access them anytime! If you have a great learning activity and want to share it with others please let us know and we may be able to post it to our resources page.

 

Have fun learning about our incredible local environment!
