What Teachers Are Saying

Grade 4 TeacherSt. Luke School

I really liked the amount of information the students acquired, the cooperative group work, access to artifacts, and items related to the region. (In-School program)

Grade 4 TeacherAcademy at King Edward

It was comprehensive, and it met each student's needs. There was reading involved, but there were pictures and interactive aspects to keep the students engaged. (In-School program)

Grade 4 TeacherAscension of the Lord School

I love this field trip (and have used it for years). I know what to expect and the students are engaged in each station. (In-School program)

Grade 4 TeacherProvost Public School

The virtual in-school field trip included a lot of great and useful information! The students were extremely excited about it and really enjoyed it. The presenter was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and positive which kept the students engaged throughout. The presenter was also very inclusive in getting individual students to come and share their answers. The body breaks that were done after going through each region was a wrap up of the region as well as a way for students to stand up and move a bit! (Video Conference program)

Nina, Grade 4 TeacherSt. Sylvester School

Our Presenter was amazing and very interactive with the students. He remembered kids' names and gave them ample time to complete the written chart. We really enjoyed his presentation and loved how it involves moment breaks and opportunities for student interaction. (Video Conference program)
