The strategies used by an animal to survive in its environment. Students will explore the special features of a number of different animals through a series of demonstrations and activities.
This lesson investigates the needs of these creatures and gives students the tools to become more aware of how they share an environment with city-dwelling animals.
In this lesson, students will learn about the process of pollination, the animals that pollinate, and the strategies that they can use to promote pollinator health and wellbeing.
Science isn’t always neat and tidy — it’s sometimes “GROSS!” Blood, vomit, brains, and pellets aren’t things you always want to talk about, but they provide valuable information about animals and how they live.
We can expand the way we think about the world by exploring the interesting world of animals and the so-called “gross” things about them. Explore why vomit is important, play a bloodsucker’s game and do some dissecting to learn more about how “gross” things are actually “cool”!
Hummingbirds are found throughout most of British Columbia. This small, warm-blooded group of birds has several unique adaptations and abilities that allow it to survive our cool climate. This lesson explores characteristics of hummingbirds and the steps we can take to make our environment more welcoming to hummingbirds.
A watershed is a section of land where all of the area’s water is collected and funnelled into the same waterway. Many human activities can negatively affect animals, particularly wild salmon, in their natural watershed habitat. The health of the watershed animal population depends on the health of their natural habitat. In this lesson, students will identify each stage of the salmon lifecycle and identify factors that affect salmon survival.
