Precious Pollinators

JUNE 2024
It’s important for children to understand where their food comes from and that without pollinators, one out every three bites of food we eat would disappear. These insects and small mammals play a vital role in guaranteeing the health of our ecosystems and food supply. Next week, June 17th-June 23rd, 2024 is National Pollinator Week. To help your class get in the spirit, we’ve got some suggestions of games and listening activities.

Are you interested in knowing more about strategies to help children deal with increasing levels of eco-anxiety? We are running two sessions of our popular Eco-Anxiety to Eco-Action Micro credential this summer, including one in person at the Earth Rangers Centre in Woodbridge, ON. More details can be found below.
Through a fun game of charades, students learn more about pollinators. After, in small groups, they will research one pollinator and create a quiz for their classmates to share fun facts about it. Which group will find the coolest pollinator? (A few ideas can be found here)
To learn more about all the great things the students of Sir Samuel Steele Public School have been up to as well as other clubs such as John de Graff School (Winnipeg, MB) and Mount Stewart Consolidated School (Mount Stewart, PEI), visit the Earth Rangers Clubs Wall of Fame.
Through discussions, reflections, as well as outdoor learning experiences on the grounds of the beautiful Kortright Centre for Conservation, you will be introduced to tools and tactics to address the environment head-on and transform feelings of anxiety into positive environmental action among your students.
Not able to make it in person? Join us online for our summer session (July 15th – Aug 16th, 2024).
The school year may be winding down, but at Earth Rangers we will be busy all summer at Earth Rangers cooking up new resources for the fall. This autumn, we will be inviting Eco-Clubs to join us on a fun adventure… stay tuned for more details in September!
Environmentally yours,
Associate Director of Education
