The program engages students in hands-on, field-based outings to nearby parks/green spaces, led by local experts (naturalists, biologists, etc.) to teach students about their environment, flora and fauna, natural processes, to help develop their awareness of and connection to Nature. Groups of students walk with their teachers to a designated “wild space” where they will be met by the PSS Team. They are then split into 2 groups so they can engage in 2 activity stations for a total period of 60 minutes. Workshop Goals and Objectives To create an opportunity for Grade 5 students to:• Be curious about how nature designs and functions. • Foster a stronger connection with Nature and their role in the ecosystem.• Learn more about their local ecosystem and the species within it.• To understand the role of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen in life-friendly chemistry and design.• Foster a sense of innovation. In November 2015, this pilot program was delivered to 3 classes from Deep Cove School at a “wild space” close to their school.
