Ecology North has developed a series of curriculum linked lesson plans for teachers in the Northwest Territories as part of the WWF Schools for a Living Planet program. The resources are for students and teachers in Grades 3 - 8 and cover the following themes - Grade 3 Northern Soils and Plants, Grade 4 - Solar Energy and Extreme Weather, Grade 5 - Snow Amazing (snow mechanics and human interaction with snow), Grade 6 - Energy and Alternatives, Grade 7 - Trash Talk (waste reduction and hazardous waste) and Grade 8 - Northern Waters. The resources were officially launched on the World Wildlife Fund website during the NWT TA Territorial Teacher’s conference, September 29 - October 1, 2014. It has been exciting to develop resources with a focus on our northern teachers and students.
