IMAX Educator Guide

IMAX Great Bear Rainforest Educator Guide

This eductor’s guide, created for MacGillivray Freeman Films by Orca Book Publishers with contributions from Ocean Networks Canada, is a companion resource to the giant-screen film Great Bear Rainforest. The guide provides a variety of multidisciplinary activities rich in language, science, ecology, social sciences and character education, each of which ties directly to the film. Lessons are grouped into learning plans and are organized according to age (e.g. kindergarten and primary; upper elementary; middle school; high school). Where relevant, we have connected the content of the learning plans to the Next Generation Science Standards (ngss). Every learning plan and lesson connects with common English Language Arts standards, and many address Social Studies standards as well. We’ve also given you a bulleted list of character education/emotional intelligence competencies when those skills are developed.
