School Assembly Lessons

You can extend your students’ learning about the environment and conservation through our new pre and post School Assembly Lessons. These lessons are curriculum-linked, inquiry based, hands-on and fun! The lessons are designed to help students understand key concepts and consolidate learning objectives that are presented during the Earth Rangers School Assembly.

Grade 1-3 Lessons

Inspector Fauna (Pre-Lesson)
Amazing Animal Cards (Post-Lesson)

Students investigate an outdoor environment, observe animals in their habitat, and communicate their findings by creating their own Amazing Animal Card. When connected with the post-lesson, learning is further deepened.

In this lesson, students consolidate learning from the School Assembly by creating their own Amazing Animal Card featuring the animal’s adaptation, habitat, and actions to protect it. The created cards can be shared to increase awareness at home or at school.

No Toque, No Problem (Pre-Discussion)
Arctic Assist (Post-Lesson)

In this discussion, students explore prior knowledge of Canada’s Arctic region. They learn about the animals that live in this extreme environment and discuss the special adaptations these animals have to help them survive.

Using inquiry through a KWL (Knowledge-Wonder-Learn) chart, students make connections between Canada’s Arctic environment and climate change impacts. Culminating in student-created awareness posters, students share their learning beyond the classroom at home or with the school community.

Resilience Ready! (Pre-Lesson)
Card-imals (Post-Lesson)

Students make connections between changes in their lives and the term resilience. Outdoors, students play an interactive game which explores the impacts climate change will have on animal populations.

Students reflect on the importance of healthy habitats, biodiversity, and climate change impacts. They create colourful animal cards that highlight this information and ways to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Inuit Action (Pre-Discussion)
So Now You Snow (Post-Lesson)

In this discussion, students explore how climate change is impacting Canada’s Arctic region and what the Inuit are doing to adapt to and help stop climate change.

Using a KWL (Knowledge-Wonder-Learn) chart, students focus on Canada’s Arctic and climate change impacts. A graphic organizer illuminates the cause and effect of climate change and students are invited to run a campaign to help mitigate it.
