Bring us into your classroom – virtually!

Our Watershed on Wheels educators are going live on YouTube with curriculum-connected lessons about the natural world!

As you tune in along with other classes across the GTA, you and your students can ask questions in real-time during the livestream lesson. Please note, in the interest of fostering a healthy livestream chat conversation, we encourage teachers of virtual classrooms to screen-share with students rather than asking them to log in individually. A YouTube account is required in order to include your questions in the livestream chat.

On Wednesday, March 10 at 2 p.m., our lesson addresses stewardship. Strengthening connections with the natural world we are all a part of has been shown to boost mental and emotional well-being. In this livestream, we invite students, teachers, homeschoolers, and anyone else watching to participate in a moment of mindfulness with us. We will share how anyone can access and delight in urban nature, and furthermore, how we can all become a champion of nature and guide others to enjoy their natural surroundings as well.

Participate in our Become a Nature Champion Challenge and you could win a prize to help connect with nature further! Tune in for more details.

This livestream is part of the NatureHood initiative, a project by Nature Canada which provides opportunities for urban Canadians to explore, play, and develop a long-lasting relationship with nature.

This Nature in Your Classroom session addresses the fundamental concepts of sustainability and stewardship in the Ontario Curriculum.

No registration needed, just tune in at our YouTube channel at 2 p.m.!
