These edu-taining workshops will have kids celebrating their curiosity, empowering their minds, and learning critical thinking skills!

This month's program is called: Protecting our Winter Wonderland

While we’re trying not to hibernate, we’ll take a look at the creatures with which we share our environment. We’ll explore how our relationship to other living things, and discuss our responsibilities toward them.

This workshop will ask questions like:

·       What’s are some of the big differences between humans, and other living creatures?

·       Why do humans think they’re in charge of nature? Are we really?

·       Do we need to take care of non-human creatures the way we take care of ourselves and others?

We’ll come up with more of our own questions, do a creative, environmental-themed, hands-on activity, and all kid thinkers will go home with some resources to play with as they brave the chilly weather. Participants are welcome to bring their favourite plush animal for inspiration, and well, because stuffies are really, really awesome.
