Teachers are bringing some Canada’s Wonderland fun to their virtual classrooms

The digital world has proven to be a great place for learning and connecting while we’re all keeping safe at home. Kudos to all the teachers and students for adapting, and embracing lessons in new ways in the virtual classroom! 

We see examples of teachers bringing a little bit of Canada’s Wonderland FUN to their students every day on social media. Tomorrow, for instance, we’ve been told all students at Sacred Heart School in Midland are being invited to take a virtual field trip to Canada’s Wonderland! Student council teacher representative Jennifer Tate told us  “We decided to do it on Friday and have the whole entire school join so that we could feel like we are all connected some way.”

That’s great! We hope everyone enjoys the trip!

With only a few weeks left in the school year, here are five ways teachers and even parents can engage students online with some Canada’s Wonderland FUN:

1. Host a virtual field trip: 
Take your class on a virtual trip to ride 16 coasters, 11 thrill rides and seven family rides with our first-person ‘point-of-view’ (POV) videos on YouTube. Best of all there are no lines and no height restrictions!

2. Challenge students to build or draw their own ride:

3. Help kids keep up their penmanship and work on their storytelling skills.

4. Dedicate some creative time for students to paint or colour while playing some fun music in the background!
You can use our printable colour by numbers and/or snoopy colouring sheets. They range in difficulty level so it’s great for both kids and adults.

5. Challenge your class to an online scavenger hunt!
