Save The River’s In the Schools Program has recently developed an On the Water component to the program to enrich the classroom curriculum being delivered in local school districts.
Through the On the Water component, students are given a chance to experience the St. Lawrence River up close, taking a boat ride on the River to view key elements to this resources ecology and also participating in hands on activities.
In providing this direct connection to the River, Save The River will instill the unique qualities and threats to this important resource, growing a deeper appreciation for the St. Lawrence River for participating students.
Save The River provides On the Water experiences for participating teachers who have implemented in the classroom curriculum. If you are interested in creating your own St. Lawrence River curriculum we’d love to hear from you. We also hope you check out our Curriculum Resources that can help get you started.
