This integrated set of activities strives to incorporate learning out of doors, environmental connections to the grade 5 science topic of Conservation of Energy and Resources as well as big ideas from the Social Studies Grade 5 strand of Role of Government and Responsible Citizenship. By presenting integrated, inquiry-based, and experiential activities to students, the learning that results is far greater than that which is simply learned from a book or computer researched. Students natural sense of wonder and discovery is encouraged throughout this set of lessons.
