thinking back at the days I spent, the only program that I remembered
and thoroughly enjoyed was presented by Gail Trenholm, "Digging into
Soil." It was fun, interactive and informative."

"Through hands on experiences we were able to learn about the
characteristics and diversity of First Nations People, the way they
interacted with each other and their relationships with nature. The
students had fun and wished you could have stayed all day."

"Scientist" Gail's enthusiasm was infectious and provided a lot of
interesting information to the students. We look forward to booking
her for next year.
A fabulous presentation filled with information connected to the
curriculum and engaging activities for the kids. A great hands-on
Nature Visits is a fun and interactive learning experience. The
children loved dressing up like insects and can't wait to see Gail
Our class visit with "Nature Gail" was an extraordinary experience for
all of us. Her dynamic approach to teaching the concept of animal
classification kept students enthralled and eager to participate in the
wide variety of hands-on activities presented. All were eager to share
comments and ask questions, and eagerly reflected on their learning
afterwards. It is without hesitation that I would recommend this
program to other primary teachers.
