Get YOUR STUDENTS outside to study Rivers
The Changing Currents program is a hands-on educational program that helps you and your students learn about your local river or stream. Students use scientific protocols to monitor the quality of the water and contribute to a GTA water-monitoring program. All of the results will be published in the Student State of Our Rivers Report (2013). Furthermore, students then get a chance to take action based on what they discover.
Throughout the program, EcoSpark supports you and your students by providing training, field-trip facilitation, equipment, guidebooks, and handouts. Follow the links to learn more and to access the resources needed to implement the program.
The program consists of five steps:
- Attending a teacher training session that prepares you to do benthic macro-invertebrate bio-monitoring
- Preparing students in class for the stream study field trip
- Hosting a stream study field trip facilitated by an EcoSpark staff member
- Analysing your data
- Helping students organize an action based on their discoveries (optional)
the changing currents program IS A FREE PROGRAM WITHIN THE Greater Toronto Area
