Nature in Your Classroom – Natural Materials

December 15, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 2:30 pm
YouTube Live

Bring us into your classroom – virtually!

Our Watershed on Wheels educators are going live on YouTube with curriculum-connected lessons about the natural world!

As you tune in along with other classes across the GTA, you and your students can ask questions in real-time during the livestream lesson. Please note, in the interest of fostering a healthy livestream chat conversation, we encourage teachers of virtual classrooms to screen-share with students rather than asking them to log in individually. A YouTube account is required in order to include your questions in the livestream chat.

On Wednesday, December 15, we are getting in the spirit of the season while exploring natural materials! With the help of a historical interpreter from Black Creek Pioneer Village, we will look at how settlers used their natural environment to not only survive, but to celebrate a variety of milestones and traditions. What abiotic and biotic materials were readily available, and how were they best used? Were these practices sustainable? How do they compare to our ways of celebrating festivities today? Tune in to find out!

To receive a worksheet, please make a request.

Address fields can be filled in using your board’s address if teaching virtually.

Select “Grade 3-6 – Natural Materials” in the drop-down menu and click “continue”. You will receive a link to access the worksheet.

No registration needed, just tune in at our YouTube channel at 2 p.m.!
