Program Description & Details

In this program, students consider ways that cultural traditions and environmental conditions affect architecture by exploring the relationship between design and function at museums around the world. Using MOA as a case study, students are led through contrasting gallery spaces and asked to record their visual, spatial and emotional impressions. After a classroom presentation that introduces the history of the museum and theories of context, purpose and function, students are encouraged to respond to the built environments they have encountered and to design a museum interior space or façade of their own.

Through inquiry and discussion, students will learn about the 3 main characteristics of a bogs, how 5 First Nations relied on the land to survive, and where the infamous sunken tractor really came from.

Tour guides demonstrate how to respectfully collect plant samples, and explain how human activity has aided the spread of invasive species through the Bog. Students will learn which leaves would make good toilet paper, as well as how to tell the difference between a plant that makes a fruity tea and one that could make them very sick.

Students will also learn about the services and resources Burns Bog provides for the Lower Mainland, as well as many of the rare and endangered species that call it home.  They will find out how different animals use physical and behavioral adaptations to help them survive in Burns Bog and the Delta Nature Reserve.

By the end of the Field Trip, your students will leave with a greater understanding of the importance of saving Burns Bog and other local ecosystems. We hope that they become eco-warriors within their own community, and take individual steps to leave a positive impact on the environment.
