What Teachers Are Saying

A.H., Grade 2 TeacherPrince of Wales School

The presenter was so knowledgeable, welll prepared and absolutely wonderful with the students and volunteers. The presentation is so well designed (from the vintage journal to the stations & content and conclusion). We loved each station - the games, lighthouse craft, making butter and charades. The students were captivated and highly engaged. We learned so much! They are so excited to journey into exploring Acadia more in-depth because of this presentation. (In-School Program)

Grade 2 TeacherRutherford School

The information was presented in a way that was very engaging for students with lots of movement opportunities. (Video Conference Program)

A.S. Grade 2 TeacherMarion Carson School

I loved the storyline and that the virtual trip was engaging with lots of movement and imagination. I think the mouse answering questions to gain a puzzle piece and a key was a great idea. (Video Conference Program)

Grade 2 TeacherSweet Grass School

I totally enjoyed this field trip. The presenter was well planned and had the parents totally ready and prepared. The stations ran very well and were very exciting with lots of hands-on experiences. The material was well connected to the curriculum. Students were engaged the entire time. (In-School Program)
