Students at Arrow Heights learned a lot about climate change on Thursday.
The kids in Laurel Russell’s Grade 4/5 class found what it could mean for them when Mindy Skinner of the Bc Sustainable Energy Association visited to hold a Climate Change Showdown workshop.
The program delivered in the classroom was a fun and informative way to talk about the issue by directing involving students. They were given a take-home assignment that gives them an incentive to carry out actions at home with their families. The 80-minute workshop included an educational presentation (role-playing and story telling), an animated Climate Change Show on DVD, a Climate Change Game, and a Climate Change Contest.
Besides working for BCSEA, Skinner is a Revelstoke resident and an active member of the North Columbia Environmental Society.
