There is a connection between nature and everything we do – how we move, eat, play… Earthbound Kids is an outdoor learning centre where education is experienced in a unique, safe, and nurturing environment. Learning is key and the result is fun! We support teachers with age appropriate curriculum linked workshops that are designed to engage kids in exploring the world around them and their role in preserving it.

Notice Nature

grade 1-8 | 40 min

Nature is incredible, yet many of us take its beauty and function for granted. With so much going on we often forget to notice how unbelievable nature is and the calming, grounding effect it has on us. How often do we stop to hear the birds chirp or leaves blow? How many different shades of blue are in the sky or green in the forest? How does nature give us structure and texture? In this 40 minute guided discovery, we’ll use our 5 senses to experience nature in new and unforgettable ways

Let’s Look at Life Cycles

40 min program
 
Students will begin by taking a brief look at distinct characteristics of the six main classes of animals (mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians and invertebrate), as well as looking for examples of each on the farm. From there, we will dig deeper into the attributes, adaptations and aspects that make up the life cycles of mammals and birds. Our farm animals will take centre stage as we discover the details of their unique life cycles.
