During the month of June, TRACKS will be offering a fun & active field trip opportunity for teachers and students in Grade 1 to 8!
Bring your class to Trent University for the day and have your students cycle through activity stations each focusing on a different aspect of Indigenous science and math. Over the course of the day, students will be able to choose three activity stations set up between the outdoor spaces at the First People's House of Learning traditional area and inside Gzowski College.
We will offer shortened TRACKS workshops which will include some of TRACKS most classic workshops (like G'Chi-Nibi & Ode-min) as well as some new and exciting workshops developed by our staff.
