Environmental Education Resources

Climate Action Training – This is a web-based education opportunity for NWT youth who are looking to gain knowledge, skills, and resources to help face the climate crisis.

Environmental Education Workshops – This document describes the different ways in which Ecology North can support schools to deliver environmental education.

Gypsy Cuckoo Bumble Bee Brochure – A public education brochure about the Gypsy Cuckoo Bumble Bee, a species at risk in the Northwest Territories.

NWT School Gardens: Garden Curriculum for Grade 3 – A school garden curriculum based on the highly successful gardening program at Weledeh School in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

NWT Science Focus: engaging NWT youth and teachers for grades 3-12 in environmental science – A website providing interactive, hands-on, science-based lesson plans and activities for youth across the NWT. Our focus is on grades 3-12 with lesson plans based on five different themes (waste, water, climate change, and energy). The teachers portal and curriculum were developed by Ecology North and funded by NSERC.

WWF Schools for a Living Planet – 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. To access these free resources please visit
