Fabulous Fall

Preparation for winter is the job of every living organism in the autumn. Hibernation, migration, seeds, leaves, life cycles and a variety of other topics will be explored by students through exploration. This introductory outdoor program is highly adaptable and experience driven and will include a time for outdoor play.

 Day of the Trip

This field study, designed for kindergarten and Grade 1 students will be done at one of the following sites:

The teacher may choose a half day or an extended half day depending on their student's ability and the grade level. For extended half days the students and teachers will need to pack a healthy lunch with plenty of liquids. Details of what materials to bring will be discussed in the extended half day class visit. See below for Outdoor Field Trip Student Checklists.
