Teacher-led Animal Life Cycles

Read our COVID-19 guidelines by clicking this banner before visiting one of our parks. We are monitoring our operations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and this page is updated as adjustments are made.

This teacher resource will assist you in designing an outdoor experience for young students as they explore the concept of life cycles.

The Animal Life Cycles resource consists of three components 

  • Multidisciplinary preparatory activities to be completed at school
  • Half-day field study that takes students through experiential activities focused on invertebrates and interdependencies within forests
  • Post-visit activities, to be done at school, intended to reflect on and apply what students have learned.
  • If you'd like suggestions on programming or using this material, please contact the Environmental Education office at 403-679-3517 or Kananaskis.Education@gov.ab.ca.
