Spending time in nature has always been an important part of good mental health and well-being. We know that sometimes you can’t get outside but that doesn’t mean that you have to stop learning about nature. Below is a wide range of resources that your children (ages 6-12) can use to learn about our local species. Click here to see our 2020 Earth Day Spotlight on the Monarch Butterfly.

Species Profiles and vocabulary worksheets

Take an in depth look at some of the species that we have in the Rouge then test your knowledge with our vocabulary activity sheets attached to each profile.

Crafts are a great way to take a break and flex a different part of your brain! We’ve created crafts that use objects that you can find at home like milk cartons and toilet paper rolls. Some crafts come with templates that you can print off at home to make creating the crafts as easy as possible for younger children.

Heading outdoors for a walk around the neighbourhood? Why not take one of our observation sheets with you so that you can record what you see!

Please remember to maintain a 2 m physical distance from others who may be out for a walk as well.
