Environmental Learning

Early on, we were aware of the existential threat of environmental degradation and climate change so, much of our curriculum and activities were developed through that prism.

For us, this meant a curriculum designed to teach basic ecology, and key issues in the field such as climate change. Ultimately we wanted to help students develop strong attachments to the natural world, encourage positive environmental behaviours and then for them to share all this with others. Earthkeepers was designed to accomplish those same goals with the grade five students.
