Greenbelt in your Schoolyard
Greenbelt in your Schoolyard provides activities for investigating urban nature.
This teacher’s guide contains five activities for grades 3-8 that aim to help young city-dwellers see how they are connected to the greenbelt. It includes hands-on lessons, discussion questions, and ideas for taking action. Through these activities, youth can find that the greenbelt is not just “out there” — it is also part of the everyday urban environment, and we all depend on the greenbelt for life. Each lesson takes approximately 45 minutes.
