Beach Life Bingo

This fun activity harnesses and focuses student energy on the beach into a learning experience. Students use full-colour bingo cards to find and identify local beach creatures. All photos were taken in the intertidal zone of Mayne Island, BC by Stephanie Hurst.

Pond Dipping

Wetlands are important habitat for many creatures such as birds, frogs, beavers and bugs. We often dismiss how much life exists underwater because we cannot see it. A simple net and bucket along with curiosity and wonder allow people to explore and learn all about water bugs. Their behaviours and adaptations are fascinating and this playful activity accentuates these aspects.

Introduction to Dichotomous Keys

Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of taxonomy and the classification of living things (how, why). The concepts are reinforced through the creation and use of their own dichotomous keys, first in the class using a basic example and then outside using local plants.
