Resources for Rethinking
Resources for Rethinking provides teachers access to lesson plans and other teaching resources that integrate environmental, social and economic spheres through learning that is interdisciplinary and action oriented.
Each R4R resource has been reviewed by an experienced class-room teacher and matched to relevant learning outcomes in Kindergarten to grade 12 for all provinces including British Columbia. The database is organized by jurisdiction, grade, subject and theme for easy navigation.
These resources are made available to teachers through Learning for a Sustainable Future, which is a non-profit Canadian organization whose mission is to promote, through education, the knowledge, skills, perspectives, and practices essential to a sustainable future.
BC Green Games The province-wide BC Green Games competition was designed to motivate environmental action by students, share good ideas, and celebrate the green efforts of all schools in BC. Now in its third year, it has always had close links with science. In fact, the Green Games was developed for the K-12 education system by Science World BC, with funding from the Ministry. Many of the Green Games judges work in a science related field.
As we celebrate the provincial Year of Science the BC Green Games offers a perfect opportunity to move science out of the classroom into the real world. Many of the winning projects from past years are linked directly to science curriculum topics such as energy, ecology, climate change, plant life, animal habitats, and water. This is a great time for BC teachers to sponsor a Green Games project that links their science curriculum to environmental issues.
Submissions should demonstrate eco-actions of students in their school or community by using video or PowerPoint. This year over $20,000 will be awarded to winning K-12 schools.
You can watch a brand new Green Games promotional video, view past winning projects and register your school to participate at the Green Games website.
