Some Great Comments From the Teachers:
“Thanks to this program I am taking away a much greater understanding and appreciation of the forest industry, especially how interconnected the industry is…from the building of roads, protecting habitats, to all the products that are produced for the consumer both home and abroad.”
“The tour gives me a solid foundation for teaching about forestry/forest products in my science/environmental science classes.”
“It will be very helpful in my ability to share with my students the different careers available to them.”
“Specifically, in curriculum design, support and implementation of our PEI grades
7 – 12 science curriculum.”
“I can seriously say that this has been one of the greatest professional development experiences that I have ever encountered. Excellent learning environment and great hands-on activities.”
Shannon Evans, a teacher from P.E.I., prepared 2 video clips on her experience from attending the 2013 Forests Worth Knowing, Atlantic Teachers’ Tour.
The first clip is a collection of pictures she captured of what she she saw.
