Staff at Toronto and Region Conservation Authority’s (TRCA) field centres will help guide you through all aspects of the Environmental Leaders of Tomorrow program and will provide the information and support you’ll need to enjoy successful experience with your students.
We have created a variety of resources to guide and support both teachers and students taking part in the Environmental Leaders of Tomorrow program.
Once your class has returned from the field centre visit, the next step is to begin organizing an action project.
You can use one of our ready-made project plans (below), connect with a local citizen science organization, or encourage your students to come up with an idea of their own!
Looking for a great way to continue the learning back at school in addition to completing your action project? Try one of the following extension activities with your class.
In addition to taking advantage of the resources made available by Environmental Leaders of Tomorrow, you may find inspiration for lesson plans and extension activities by investigating what other environmental and educational organizations have to offer.
We’ve listed some examples below to help you get started. Looking for something in particular? Contact us!
