At-home field trips

PARENTS: Since schools are unable to offer students outdoor field trips to the Weaselhead this season, consider downloading one of our free ‘at-home' field trip booklets.... (Prefer an outdoor field trip? Check out our modified outdoor programs for fall.)

TEACHERS: Booklets have spaces for students to answer questions and record observations. They can be printed, handed out to be done at home, then collected for assessment. (Teachers with a 'cohort' or 'learning pod' - check out our modified outdoor programs for fall.)

The booklets cover the same science units as our usual outdoor programs, but can be done in your home, in your backyard or in a neighbourhood park or green space. The booklets contain all the instructions and information required for completion. The activities aim to get students away from devices and screens and to encourage direct observation of the natural world while covering the relevant Alberta curriculum. Internet access is not necessary. 

(Versions in French and Mandarin will be posted to our website as they become available.)

Extra assistance is available via email or video chat with one of our Naturalists.  This service is  free for members, non-members will be charged a small fee. For details contact education@theweaselhead.com
