Species at Risk in Action Education Kit

Are you a teacher? Would you like to learn how to teach your students about local biodiversity? Download Carolinian Canada Coalition's Species at Risk in Action Education Kit. This Kit will:

  • Connect students with their local environment
  • Connect students with the ideas and tools that will allow them to make long-lasting changes in their school, home and community
  • Challenge students to think about how they can be part of the solution instead of focusing on the problems
  • Empower students to care for the vulnerable species in their local area
  • Provide students with new perspectives and ideas towards achieving ecological sustainability and biodiversity

The Kit provides teachers with background knowledge, current and locally connected lesson plans, extensions for further learning, and all the support materials to deliver the lessons.

The Kit is divided into three modules that are available for download at the following links.
