What Teachers Are Saying

N. K-P., Grade 4 TeacherJohn Stuart School

I loved that in 2 hours students were able to cover many of the unit outcomes. Activities were engaging and held student interest and were activities that would have required a lot of teacher prep to complete in a regular classroom setting. My students loved the Presenter as he was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the subject matter. (In-School program)

B.S., Grade 4 TeacherEarl Buxton School

I loved how much content was covered, the videos, images, and slides that made it engaging, as well as the student participation in answering questions. The "mystery object" that was uncovered was a neat twist as well with the "game" questions that came up periodically through the presentation. I thought the whole presentation and program was excellent and great considering it was through technology! A nice change for my students. I was happy to see that the sundials were high quality (wood not paper) which made it a nice token for the students to take home. (Video Conference program)

O.Z., Grade 4 TeacherSt. Matthew School

The centres were fun and educational. The students made a couple of take-home projects which would have been too difficult and time-consuming for me to have made with them (i.e.getting little mirrors cut for periscopes). (In-School program)

J.S., Grade 4 TeacherHazeldean Sschool

I liked that this field trip had lots of "hands-on" activities which kept the students engaged and were directly related to the curriculum....Well done! (In-School program)

Grade 4 TeacherMontrose School

The presenter was so patient and enthusiastic. She engaged the kids in the presentation. The slides went over everything we cover in the Light and Shadows unit. (Video Conference program)
