Online Environmental Education Workshops

EnvironmentalEducation

The City of Surrey, in partnership with Skye Consulting, is now offering online workshops on the topics of waste, energy and water conservation that affect our community. These live, virtual programs are free, highly interactive and curriculum-connected. 

RETHINK Waste Online - Grades 2 to 5

Workshop time: 60 minutes

This live workshop examines our “stuff” and how we use earth’s materials as natural resources. Students learn how we can avoid before we practice the 3Rs. This highly interactive workshop educates Surrey's young residents using trivia, sorting games and creative imagination. Students will explore the life cycle of jeans, go on a journey to learn about waste recycling and organic waste diversion, and test their knowledge of what is "away" when we throw our garbage out. Students will also learn about water and energy and the exciting way Surrey transforms organic waste.

Teachers are provided with a list of materials the students should bring to “class” and  pre-and post-activities students can do independently at home.

Energy & Water Wise Online - Grades 4 to 7

Workshop time: 60 minutes

This workshop explores energy and water conservation in terms of what we can do and the choices we have. We explore renewable and non-renewable energy in engaging and hands-on ways to investigate that energy comes in a variety of forms and discover the differences between tap water and bottled water. Students will learn the links between energy, greenhouse gases, and climate change as they explore sustainable water and energy use through interactive games, a trivia challenge and collaborative brainstorming.

Teachers are provided with a list of materials the students should bring to “class” and  pre-and post-activities students can do independently at home.
