Program Description

Let SPES come to your school! Although we offer schools outdoor field trips year-round, we understand that due to COVID-19, transportation may be a barrier to getting your students outside. We will bring props to green spaces near your school and engage your students in an immersive outdoor experience.

  • Nature Detectives
  • Forest Fundamentals 
  • Beautiful Bats
  • Seasons and Cycles
  • Beach Expolorers

Big Ideas
  • Daily and seasonal changes affect all living things.
  • Plants and animals have observable features.
  • Living things have features and behaviours that help them survive in their environment.
  • Observable patterns and cycles occur in the local sky and landscape.
  • Living things have life cycles adapted to their environment.
  • Water is essential to all living things, and it cycles through the environment.
  • Living things are diverse, can be grouped, and interact in their ecosystems.
  • All living things sense and respond to their environment.
  • The motions of Earth and the moon cause observable patterns that affect living and non-living systems.
  • Multicellular organisms have organ systems that enable them to survive and interact within their environment.
  • Multicellular organisms rely on internal systems to survive, reproduce, and interact with their environment.
  • Evolution by natural selection provides an explanation for the diversity and survival of living things.
  • COVID Precautions
