Program Description & Details

At the FRDC, we understand that some educators may not be able to attend or feel comfortable with physical field trips in the post-COVID school year. In response to your concerns, we are developing outreach kits that educators will be able to borrow to extend the learning of classrooms in a safe way. 

To develop these programs, we need your help! Please fill in our educator survey to tell us what you need from an outreach kit, or email us your comments to [email protected].

Program Description & Details

Help students discover the Fraser River through creative, hands-on activities designed with British Columbia’s school curriculum in mind.

Download our free My River, My Home Resource Kit for lesson plans, activities and background information related to the ecosystems, cultures and industries connected to the Fraser River. The kit aligns with our fully guided education programs, with many activities that are suitable to extend learning before or after field trips to the Fraser River Discovery Centre.

 

Complementing the award winning “My River My Home” exhibit at the Fraser River Discovery Centre in New Westminster, the free 100-page, user-friendly guide:

  • Includes 25 lesson plans and background information for educators
  • Challenges students to see the Fraser River holistically, exploring concepts of environmental, cultural and economic sustainability through creative activities, writing prompts and hands-on activities
  • Activities meet BC Ministry of Education Curriculum requirements for grades K-9 and address BC’s new cross-curricular competencies (critical thinking, personal and social awareness and responsibility, and communication skills).

The kit is divided into 5 sections that can be explored independently or used to create an inquiry unit about the Fraser River:

  1. Connect: students are asked to activate previous knowledge and explore the question “What is my connection to the Fraser River?”
  2. Develop Knowledge and Explore Sustainability: students explore the cultural, economic, and environmental sustainability of the Fraser River.
  3. Investigate Water Quality: introduces water quality and outlines the Taking the Pulse of the Fraser program available at the Discovery Centre.
  4. Putting the Fraser on the Global Map: students study and compare the cultures, environment, and art, and water quality data from the Fraser, Amazon, Congo, Ganges-Brahmaputra, and Kolyma rivers.
  5. What’s Next: The final section encourages students to become active citizens in water quality issues.

For suggestions on how to use or modify an activity in the kit, or to book a professional development workshop for educators on using the kit with your students, please contact [email protected].
