The Story of the Great Lakes

Climate/Environment

Climate/Environment
Climat

Through an interactive story, students will experience the issues relating to the water quality of the Great Lakes and St Lawrence River basin, from Lake Nipigon downstream to the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean. Hence, students will explore the impacts that local and regional issues can have on the world and experience the inter-connectedness between various human activities (industrial and commercial, agricultural, mining, and personal), and water pollution, both indirect and direct, in order to illustrate that pollution is not always visible. Students will be asked to make decisions in order to manage and prevent water pollution at a personal, local and national level.
