Environmental Education

Though this isn't solely a math initiative, i wanted to point out that the province has created a document that aligns with the June 2007 "Shaping Our Schools, Shaping Our Future" document on Environmental Education in Ontario Schools. This document is called "A Scope and Sequence of Expectations" which indicates how Environmental Education can be taught throughout the Grade 1 to 8 curriculum in various subjects and strands.

i tried to order some for the schools but the document is only available on line (which makes sense from an environmental standpoint).

Then you can decide whether or not you want to print only the pages you want, print the document in its entirety, or the most environmentally responsible option, bookmark the page so you can refer back to it.

If you have any ideas for connecting Math to the environment, feel free to add them to the blog!
