Lesson Plans

SkeenaWild has developed several lesson plans which adhere to the tenets of British Columbia's new curriculum standards - they are inquiry-based, place-based, promote experiential learning, provide descriptions of hands-on activities, and incorporate local Indigenous perspectives.  These lesson plans provide educators with relevant background information, key definitions, suggested activities, and links to additional resources.
