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, May 19, our session will focus on concepts of sustainable ecosystems and we invite your grade 9 students to join us. We will share specific examples of human activity within terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, with an emphasis on positive action and outcomes. The livestream will be conducted in a webinar format, given current pandemic-related restrictions.

To receive a worksheet, please request one here:

Address fields can be filled in using your board’s address if teaching virtually.
Select “Grade 9 – Sustainable Ecosystems” in the drop-down menu and click “continue”. You will receive a link to access the worksheet.

The curriculum addressed in this livestream is Grade 9 Biology: Sustainable Ecosystems and Human Activity.

We will focus on the following overall expectation:

  • Assess the impact of human activities on the sustainability of terrestrial and/or aquatic ecosystems, and evaluate the effectiveness of courses of action intended to remedy or mitigate negative impacts.

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

We look forward to investigating ecosystem sustainability with you!
