BOOK A WILD VOICES FOR KIDS PROGRAM!
Due to recent CBEEN program funding changes, we will now offer price options for Wild Voices for Kids programs.
Please select the price option that suits your needs, knowing that some schools don’t have access to the financial resources that others do.
We ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking. It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator.
We continue to have a COVID-19 policy in place and teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs.
Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at email@example.com

About the Program
The world is OLD. Lets find out how old it is, how scientists measure this and how the land and climate we see changes over time.
We will learn what the Earth is made of, as well as learn to identify different types of rocks and get a demonstration of the Rock Cycle. There will also be an introduction to the concept of Geological Time, which will include a fun quiz to remember the names of different eras and epochs. We will also talk about climate, as well as weathering as an agent of change.
