CLIMATE CHANGE SOLUTIONS FOR THE CREDIT RIVER WATERSHED

 

This curriculum-based video series brings a local focus to issues taking place in the Credit River watershed such as climate change, water quality, biodiversity and the importance of urban green spaces for health and wellness in our communities.

When using this resource, students watch a video online and complete a short questionnaire to gauge their understanding. They can then participate in the in-class activity that is provided which complements the video. The activities actively engage students in community environmental issues and connect to the Ministry of Education Ontario Curriculum.
