Explore the journey that happens when water meets the different surfaces of our community (penetrates, flows, evaporates, etc.). Compare and contrast interactions with urban and natural materials; connections to Science & Technology and Social Studies
Students develop a positive, empathetic attitude towards soil invertebrates by studying their characteristics and engaging in several activities including games, finding various cryptozoa, classifying them and racing them; connections to Science & Technology
- The Wonderful World of Plants (October - April)
This program is designed for learners in Grades 1 and 2. Through opportunities for hands-on explorations in our greenhouse, students will gain a deeper understanding of characteristics of living vs non-living things and how plants (and other living things) meet their basic needs. Students may have the opportunity to participate in a variety of centre based learning activities and help care for and maintain the plants in our greenhouse as part of the program. This program may include a walk in the local area. (Location: Greenhouse beside the City Adult Learning Centre, across from Broadview station)
