6 Week Online Learning Game: Virtual Canoe Race – Oct 5
Posted by Delaware Riverkeeper Network on September 8, 2020
Calling all educators! Registration is open for the Delaware Riverkeeper Network and Green Amendments For The Generations fall 2020 Virtual Canoe Race, which will run for six weeks from October 5th to November 15th.
Starting on October 5th and then every Monday for six weeks, ten questions about the Delaware River Watershed and the Green Amendment movement will be posted on our canoe race website. With every correct answer, participants will see their canoes travel down the virtual Delaware River. In addition, participants may gain bonus miles each week by answering additional questions or completing activities. Boats that paddle the farthest win prizes and gift cards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Even if you don’t win, everyone will get a small prize for participating.
The Virtual Canoe Race is a fantastic way for students and youth to learn about watershed history, geography, biology, and ecology as a team. The design of the Race encourages critical thinking, problem solving, research skills, and teamwork in order to answer the questions correctly and paddle down the River towards the prize. Additionally, the Virtual Canoe Race can easily be used by teachers and classrooms who are meeting remotely or in-person. This curriculum supplement only needs about an hour of time a week, and it is easy to add to existing curriculum, or you can use it as the basis of a unit that you build around it.
