Stay Curious! Ask, Learn, Grow!
Curiosity is powerful. It encourages us to ask questions, seek answers, think critically, find solutions and develop better ways of doing things. It helps us to be open to others, build understanding and foster empathy. Animals are intrinsically interesting to young people and can be a powerful motivator for fostering curiosity that can be easily extended to others and the environment.
As part of the theme, we asked students across Alberta to send in their ‘Curious Questions’ about animals to have answered by animal experts! Click on the button below to see the questions.
