Program Description & Details

The BC Provincial Coalition was established in 2013 with the overarching goal of showing young people in BC that they can enjoy time spent outdoors and learn more about the different uses of BC’s forests, including wood products, jobs, recreation and spiritual values. We provide field trip opportunities, as resources allow, to inform your students about topics relating to forestry, forests and the forest environment in BC. The Coalition can also offer you a number of resources including handouts, giveaways, videos and speakers to bring the forest to your classroom whether your class is in a rural or urban school.

For the BC Field Trips Fair, two field trips are available. One will be to the District of Mission Tree Farm and the other to the operations in the Fraser Valley of a forest company.

Program Description & Details

Our award-winning curriculum engages and stimulates students to connect the history of a young German immigrant family in Vancouver (between1880s-1920s) to their own and to reflect on immigration and social and cultural differences. The visit is split into 3 parts: architectural drawing (house and neighborhood), a tour of the house (during which children learn about the history of a family and of the city of Vancouver), and the discovery of unusual historical artifacts. This curriculum is particularly geared towards Grade 5 students, but can be easily adapted or used for other grades.
