Canada Education Park
With a name like the Canada Education Park, you can’t deny that they have some trustworthy goals in place. The park is generally designed for students who are in university, but look for programs that will invite younger ones in – they’re there!
Fundy National Park
This park is really concerned with the environment. According to its website, some of the programs that it offers include fairs about environmental science, for one. Your entire family can attend them together to learn a thing or two about the beautiful world around us and how to keep it that way.
Forks Historic Sites
The full title of this place is The Forks National Historic Sites of Canada. According to the Parks Canada’s Archaeology website, this park will really help enhance your child’s understanding of ancient civilizations – the people who came long before all of us were ever on this planet.
The Archaeology website also points to the Fraser Valley, is located in British Columbia, as a wonderful place to explore. The site notes that this place was home to “the ancient village of Xá:ytem.” Truly, your children will begin to understand the importance of history if nothing else.
L’Anse aux Meadows
Here’s another one that the Archaeology website promotes. The site writes, “Information on the discovery, excavation, history and reconstruction of the Viking settlement” can be found at this location. Once again, your children will get a taste of both science and history when they go here.
At Prince Albert National Park, your kids are going to get a taste of the forest life. Look into different seasonal activities to get your kids as close to nature as possible. Remember, the more they understand, the more power they have.
The Elk Island National Park of Canada is an excellent place to go, because many endangered species can be found there. Your kids can develop an appreciation for how important it is to care for these animals by seeing them up close in their natural beauty.
