Nature in Your Classroom – Resilient Ecosystems
By Jasmine Thompson

Bring us into your classroom - virtually! 
 
Our Watershed on Wheels educators are live on YouTube with curriculum-connected lessons about the natural world! 

 

As you tune in along with other classes across the GTA, you and your students can ask questions in real-time during the livestream lesson. A YouTube account is required in order to include your questions in the livestream chat. While content will be geared to grades 7-9, everyone is welcome to join!

 

On February 22nd, we’re recognizing Invasive Species Awareness week with a livestream all about resilient ecosystems. With a focus on wetlands, students will learn about interactions between native and invasive species and how those interactions can influence the health of the larger system. We will also share the impact that human actions have had on ecosystem health, and how we can all take steps to ensure the sustainability of our local environment.  

 

Invasive Species Awareness Week is taking place from Feb. 20-26, 2023. To learn more, visit: https://www.invasivespeciescentre.ca/event/invasive-species-awareness-week-2023/   

 

The curriculums addressed in this livestream are: 

  • Grade 7: Interactions in the Environment 
  • Grade 8: Water Systems 
  • Grade 9: Sustainable Ecosystems and Climate Change 

If you are interested in receiving a worksheet in advance, please request one below - address fields can be filled in using your board’s address if teaching virtually. Select “Grades 7-9 – Resilient Ecosystems” in the drop-down menu and click “continue”.  

No registration needed, just tune in to our YouTube channel at 2 p.m.! 

 

Looking forward to exploring ecosystems with you!
