Pre-Visit and Post-Visit Activities
Our pre and post visit activity packages align directly with the River School program you have booked, and are free to use. Educators can download the package and work with students prior to the field trip, helping introduce them to the important Fraser River topics. During your visit, students will be encouraged to share their current knowledge with our leaders, engaging in discussion and using critical thinking methods to analyse the subject. Our post visit activities offer students a chance to re-purpose what they learned at the Fraser River Discovery Centre, keeping students inquisitive and interested. Pre-visit and post-visit activities encourage links between classroom content and field trips, reinforcing knowledge and emphasizing its importance.
