WWF-Canada's Schools for a Living Planet program empowers educators and students of all ages with the tools and resources they need to lead us into a sustainable future. Schools for a Living Planet is grounded in the principles that make WWF a global success — including strong science and a focus on solutions.

WWF has developed free, curriculum-linked lesson plans for elementary teachers to download and integrate into their classrooms. These lesson plans connect directly to conservation priorities in Canada's forests, lakes and Arctic. Educators can take their students' learning beyond the classroom by participating in WWF events, like Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.    

Secondary and post-secondary students can use Schools for a Living Planet toolkits to make an impact through WWF events like National Sweater Day, Earth Hour and Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Students can get involved as individuals or engage their school's WWF Club / environmental club to take part. 

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

This is that time of the year to be teaching your students about sustainability, shoreline clean up and ecosystems.  Beach field trip with correlated lesson plans :)

By registering with Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) as an educator http://www.cwf-fcf.org/en/educate/sign-up.html you receive updates and direct emails for opportunities to participate in educational programs. These programs are generally offered to all educators regardless of class size. Our family has participated in contests and has had opportunities to have photos and writings published, as well as meet other leaders in wildlife conservation. We met Olympic Medalist Adam Kreek, as well as world-renowned artist, Robert Bateman. By providing these unique opportunities I hope to inspire my children as well as providing role models.

From CWF site:
CWF education programs are built on sound pedagogical foundations: a conceptual framework, curriculum links, piloting in Canadian classrooms, and the scrutiny of scientific experts. Our programs are designed to meet the needs not only of teachers but also of youth leaders, park naturalists, and other conservation educators.
