We can learn from the many ways that living creatures work together in the natural world. Participate in some “wild” team building activities in the outdoors which will help your class become a better team.
A Winter Dose of Vitamin N (Grades 1+)
Get a healthy dose of “Vitamin N” (Nature), by spending the day outdoors – snowshoeing, playing various trail games, and participating in a variety of nature appreciation activities.
Adaptations to Winter
Through a hike, hands-on activities and games, students will learn about how plants and animals survive in the winter by adapting to the cold and snow.
Things may look pretty barren out there in winter – learn to identify winter trees, animal tracks, and other signs of life to discover the hidden winter world. Role-play being an animal with special adaptations to survive the perils of winter!
Quinzhee Building (snow conditions permitting)
Students will work in groups to build a quinzhee – snow shelter.
This activity promotes teamwork, cooperation and problem solving skills.
Includes a hike to and from quinzhee building site and time for a game or activity of your choice.
