Fall 2014

 

Arundel Nature and Science Centre was very busy this Fall with visiting SWLSB students!  We met students from Kindergarten to WOTP, students explored the natural world through science, outdoor education, and environmental leadership.

The new SWLSB Science & Technology Elementary Curriculum Map should be your go to tool for all science!  Look to see where an ANSC visit fits and book a trip!  ANSC it not just another field trip…it is the FIELD TRIP… where learning comes naturally!  We leave the textbook behind and apply student knowledge through hands-on lessons in the natural environment.  

Some sites to consider in your planning:
