The Importance of Indigenous Perspectives in Children’s Environmental Inquiry

4PM Pacific, Thursday May 13
With Haley Higdon of Natural Curiosity

REGISTER

Join Haley Higdon of Natural Curiosity to learn about the 2nd edition of their resource, The Importance of Indigenous Perspectives in Children’s Environmental Inquiry. This resource supports a stronger basic awareness of Indigenous perspectives and their importance to environmental education. The driving motivation for a second edition was the burning need, in the wake of strong and unequivocal recommendations by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, to situate Indigenous perspectives into the heart of Canadian educational settings and curricula, most notably in connection with environmental issues.

We are pleased to offer this resource in French and English on our Outdoor Learning Store:

Inspiring Environmental Learning through Music & Song!

4PM Pacific, Thursday, May 20
With Teacher and Eco-singer Remy Rodden

REGISTER

In this “voices-on” workshop, we’ll investigate the wonderful world of “envirosongs” or “songs for environmental education”. Veteran educator and eco-singer Remy Rodden will lead you in a few tunes to lift your spirits and celebrate the natural world.

He’ll also share some tips on how to use music and song to supplement your teaching for different grades, some song-writing ideas and where to find other resources. You’ll also be invited to share your success stories using music as a launchpad for environmental inquiry.

We are pleased to offer both of Remy’s albums on our non-profit Outdoor Learning Store!
