Earth Rangers Classroom Activities are hands-on, interactive activities that provide curriculum-linked content to broaden the scope of environmental education in the classroom.
The Need for Seed (Grade 3)
An engineering challenge! After examining the characteristics of plants and seeds to investigate the adaptations that allow them to disperse successfully in different environments, students are tasked with building the perfect seed. This complements the Grade 3 Classroom Visit Program about pollinators.
Fly Away Home (Grade 4)
An exploration of the impacts of habitat loss and fragmentation on animal populations, as studied through the lens of a paper airplane “bird” completing its annual migration home! This complements the Grade 4 Classroom Visit Program about habitats.
White-nose Wipeout (Grades 5-6)
An interactive game that will help teach students about the importance of bats and the devastating impacts of White-nose Syndrome on their populations. This complements the Grade 5 Classroom Visit Program about bats and biodiversity.
Food for Thought (Grade 6)
A focus on the impact of climate change that challenges students to calculate the carbon footprint of their lunch and determine how even their food choices can impact the environment. This complements the Grade 6 Classroom Visit Program about climate change.
