Live It Earth & BC SPCA Present

Did you know that a dog’s sense of smell can be 60,000 times better than a human? For our upcoming program, we're partnering with our friends at BC SPCA and their experts to learn all about how dogs communicate and view the world around them, what the BC SPCA does to help animals find their forever homes, and how we can build happy relationships with the dogs in our own lives!

We all really enjoy the variety of activities and challenges! It has put a spark into my classroom! Students are engaged and eager to learn more about whatever topic we are doing. They also are excited and eager to find out what the next topic will be. As a teacher, I enjoy learning right along with the students. The program is so well laid out, there is very minimal prep for the teacher to do. It is a wonderful program! Brenda Keay, Gr. 1-3 Teacher SD22
It's been like a gift, having all this material. You truly do some great work designing these activities, it certainly covers many curricular areas. The buy in is 100% with my students. Jason Terfloth, Grade 2 Teacher
“I couldn’t be more in love with your series!! Thank you for putting together such a wonderful program that I can pass along to my students at home.” Jackie Kosh, Grade 4 and 5 Teacher
