BioKit Activity Guide for Educators

cover of publication

Developed by the Biosphere, environment museum, the BioKit Activity Guide for Educators offers activities to complete with youth groups before leaving for, and upon returning from, a BioKit outing. Taking part in these introductory and concluding activities will facilitate the participants' understanding of biodiversity; by doing so, they will get the most out of their field experience. The guide can be used with any of the BioKits. It targets adults (teachers, educators, leaders, etc.) accompanying youth groups. The activities are appropriate for participants aged 6 to 12 years.

How to use the BioKit Activity Guide for Educators:

  1. Download and print the BioKit Activity Guide for Educators.
