Staying Alive


Program Overview

Students will learn to distinguish living from non-living things, the needs of different plants and animals found locally, and how those needs are met in their environment. Add on a visit to our hiwus Feasthouse for a special presentation by our First Nations elder, Kwel-a-a-nexw, and a traditional perspective on the local flora and fauna.

Field Experience – Outdoor “classrooms” will be utilized whenever possible to explore local habitat in person

Through cooperative activities and the use of artefacts, we will explore a variety of plants and animals, the mountain habitat they call home, and what non-living things they need to survive. A review of the terms plant, animal, needs, food, sunlight, air, water and shelter will be useful for your students.
