We had some very excited students on our side of the camera who were really inspired by what you had to share. I think this experience will help with their understanding of what we are studying in social studies.

Honestly, all the experiences are meaningful for them. Besides the activities, students obtained special tidbits of information about nature that they learned through hands-on experiences and the leadership of the guides.

Teacher Welcome to Winter Program

In my teaching context, we teach students who need a lot of support adjusting to their new country. This day is a great way to lessen anxiety about cold weather in our country, make positive memories of their first years in Canada and gain cultural and historical insight to their new home.
