Earth Day

April 22, 2020

An annual event supporting environmental action.

Protecting species at risk

A whale-sized thank you to the 300 teachers from every corner of the province (from Victoria to Prince George to Cranbrook) who celebrated Earth Day and the actions we can take here in B.C. to protect our environment. 

By connecting the Earth Day theme (protect our species) with the B.C. curriculum, our resources had your students testing their knowledge with whale trivia questions, buzzing around like bees to learn about pollination, and getting creative with arts and crafts.  

We’re always excited to see your creations and hear your feedback. We’ve shared some of your Earth Day masterpieces below and while we count down to next April 22, check out other special events we have in the works.
