THE MARKET AT GRANARY ROAD & ACTIVE LEARNING PARK TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
Field Trips and Adventures!
1 ACTIVE LEARNING PARK.
11 INTERACTIVE EXHIBITS.
A MILLION POSSIBILITIES.
AN INTERACTIVE DESTINATION LIKE NO OTHER IN CALGARY!
Imagine: A giant, 3-level, human-sized ant farm filled with fun obstacles to navigate. A menacing 10-foot wide animatronic Wolf Spider on top of a 20-foot high web climber. A “blind as a bat” maze that will make your head spin like those who live their lives in the dark. Indeed, this is not your ordinary field trip!
Granary Road will take your students on an adventure that they will love and long remember!
OUR ACTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
There are 4 types of content for teachers and leaders to access at Granary Road: Video, Display Walls, Q & A and Student Dialogue. Each modality offers an opportunity for children to learn in the ways that are unique to their comprehension styles.
And above all, the Granary Road Active Learning Park teaches children how to LEARN & PLAY at the same time!
OUR ALBERTA CURRICULUM ALIGNMENT
Each of the 11 exhibits in our Active Learning Park contains a deliverable educational lesson that aligns with Alberta Education’s Program of Studies and science curriculum requirements. Each grade, from kindergarten to Grade 9, is offered a robust learning opportunity through videos, display walls, a question & answer period, and peer-to-peer student dialogue. These teachings are coupled with exhilarating activity experiences to elevate the child’s overall content absorption!
At Granary Road, we help teachers and leaders plan field trips that are relevant to the science curriculum being covered in their classrooms or programs. To facilitate that greatest learning impact, we have created a list of Featured Field Trips that cover a range of science topics. And if customization is needed, then teachers and leaders can opt to Create Their Own!
