What are “Edu-kits?”
Friends of Banff produce and distribute wolf, bear, and elk edu-kits to schools and communities both within and outside the park, offering hands-on environmental learning opportunities. These traveling trunks are available for a nominal charge and are filled with pelts, skulls, scat, fur swatches, CD’s and books relevant to animals and their place in the ecosystem. A manual of teaching ideas supports Alberta curriculum topics (included in each trunk), for grades 4-9 Social Studies, Science, Language Arts, and CTS. The kits are entirely self-contained and designed to be shipped by bus.
