Polaris Montessori in Prince George, BC, focuses on teaching about the interconnectedness of life on our planet. Five new garden beds will serve as a place where students can learn about pollinators and their relationship with plants. Also, creative, educational initiatives, such as presentations by their intermediate students and articles published in the school newsletter, will provide students and their families additional opportunities to learn about pollinators.
Polaris Montessori has a focus on students understanding the natural world, and the human place within this world. We teach students about the interconnectedness of life on the planet, from a large scale-level of the universe to the smaller scale of local ecosystems. We have five new garden beds at our school, and would like to make these gardens part of providing habitat for pollinators’. Botany and Zoology are part of our Montessori curriculum. Students study the parts of plants, and the biology of pollinators from a young age in our school. Becoming a Bee City school will be a natural extension of this learning as students will be able to connect their knowledge to daily care and observations in the garden.
