Classroom Activities

After your visit at Warren Park Outdoor Education Centre follow up activities can help solidify students experiential learning. RAFT’s and Choice Boards are tools to assist with non fiction writing assignments. RAFTS can help teachers identify and incorporate the elements of an effective writing assignment and are very similar to GRASP’s found within the Ecoschools guidelines. Choice Boards offer ways to target multiple intelligences providing differentiated opportunities for learning and assessment. We have also included links to other websites with meaningful  post activities.

The activities are listed under the name of the program.
