Addressing Aquatic Invasive Species

Presenters: Bob Thomson and Brook Schryer

Tuesday, February 2 2015 7:30-8:30pm EST 

Tackling aquatic invasive species (AIS) presents special challenges for educators. Bob Thomson uses inquiry methods with a place-based format to ensure that students are participants in the educational process. AIS allows his students to develop their informational reading skills on a subject that they can research and create informational essays and presentation that they can use to inform the community on ways to prevent the spread of AIS.  They also do research projects focused on understanding the impact of invasive species impact, in cooperation with local agencies.  Brook Schryer will introduce the Grades 4 & 6 curriculum units developed by the Invading Species Awareness Program of the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.
