Program Description & Details

Tundra & I will visit your school if it is within a reasonable travel distance. During the COVID 19 pandemic, this visit occurs outdoors, preferrably in a forested area on your school grounds or nearby. If no such location, then we use your school fields & we improvise that it is a forest. Students & staff get to watch Tundra's behavior & I explain what wolves in the wild would be doing. I tell many First Nation stories & legends about the wolf & why this animal is so important to their culture. I explain the important role the wolf plays in the ecosystem as an apex predator & keystone species. Opportunity for many questions from students & staff. Cost is $100 for the walks & travel expenses to the school.

If your school is too far away, I can over a ZOOM version of this program where the same material is covered & the students & staff get to see the four wolves our centre has.

Program Description & Details

This 30-minute live digital program is adapted from MOA’s onsite Archaeology of the Lower Fraser River program, which was designed in collaboration with archaeologists from the Laboratory of Archaeology at UBC. During the program students will discover the rich 9,000 year history of the First Nations communities along the Lower Fraser River.  With the help of volunteer facilitators during the live digital component, students will learn about the life ways, tools and technology used by First Nations people. This is done by observing and studying ancient cultural belongings using 3D and live images.  The live digital component is part of an overall unit plan, with prerequisite lessons that show the techniques used by archaeologists to find and identify the belongings.

Once you book this school program, you will receive the complete unit plan by email, along with confirmation of date and time of the live digital component.
