NEW Online Programs
The Lesser Slave Forest Education Society is working with local teachers and schools to create virtual fieldtrips for students in K-12. Since we are not able to bring students on fieldtrips, the next best thing we could think of is to bring the boreal forest and all its creatures to the students who are learning at home! We hope you enjoy our lessons and if you are looking for something in particular please let us know and we can look at making it for you.
K-3 Bird Mystery
Help us solve “the Case of the Extra Egg”. Wendy the Yellow Warbler discovered an extra egg in her nest last spring and it was too much work trying to raise all the young! Can you help us solve the mystery of who laid the egg and why?
Download the case file and watch the video to find clues that will help you along the way.
Ready to Go Lesson Plans
We are lucky here in the Lesser Slave Lake Region – the boreal forest is right outside our backdoor! Students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 can visit the boreal forest everyday and still only be 5 minutes from home. The Lesser Slave Forest Education Society provides curriculum related programs through interactive field trips and classroom presentations to schools and community groups in the Lesser Slave Lake region. Through our many years of experience and professional expertise, we are in the process of creating downloadable lesson plans for educators outside our region to access anywhere, anytime. Together, with our educational partner the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory, these lesson plans will be developed at each grade level and will focus on curriculum regarding forests and environmental education. Please enjoy and have fun with the lesson plans that we have developed to date. If you have any questions or concerns just email firstname.lastname@example.org
