This is meant as an enrichment activity to dovetail with BC’s resources and economy.

Description
Animation is a relatively overlooked area of art education and educators are not likely to have experience with the positive learning prospects that can be incorporated into the classroom. This medium proposes to encompass all teaching areas to broaden the spectrum of educational possibilities of all types of learners, including those with learning disabilities. Students and teachers show an enthusiasm for the medium but may lack the educational tools or, hold certain assumptions about animation that may make it a difficult medium to use within the confines of the classroom or institution. The intent of this project is to supply the reader with concrete forms and ideas that can assist educators in their attempts to integrate art education with different subject matter. Teaching aids such as simplified lesson plans for animation projects are included as well as discussions surrounding the benefits gained through using animation techniques and its historical development.

'Naomi's Road' is a novel about a young girl that relates a tale of unquenchable human spirit, undaunted by prejudice and unable to let go of hope. 'A Place Where Sunflowers Grow' by Amy Lee-Tai looks at imprisonment through the eyes of a child, and offers beautiful, haunting depictions of life in a Japanese internment camp during World War 2.

Description
The documentary video Flood of Change shares the story of three youth in Nepal and their movement to take action around water, sanitation and hygiene issues. The story is told by Nepalese youth who filmed 70% of the final footage and found the words and images to share their story. In this video, we learn about a diarrhea outbreak that happened in the Western Region of Nepal in 2009. The outbreak affected over 5,000 individuals and caused more than 464 deaths in 18 districts. The majority of the deaths were people in the ethnic group known as Dalits or "untouchables" who are a low income group in Nepal and have poor access to sanitation facilities and little education on safe water, sanitation and hygiene. A group of youth from Kathmandu mobilized to visit the region and create awareness about the importance of safe water and sanitation in the affected area.

The Kids of Kayele is an online game that uses video, photos, trivia and interactive game play, to teach students about global water and sanitation issues. Players assume the role of exchange students that must maintain the health of their friends, while visiting Zambia. Through the game students learn about human impact on water quality, microbiological contamination, current practices and technologies that affect water quality and problems that require both technological and social solutions. The clues to stay healthy during the game are provided by the Kids of Kayele, a group of youth from a hygiene club in Zambia. This resource includes a lesson plan explaining how to play the video game, as well as a lesson to debrief learning.

Tikho’s Story is a slideshow CAWST’s Youth Wavemakers made with a young girl in Zambia named Tikho.

Tikho is the daughter of Gladys, a nurse who works at Seeds of Hope International Partnerships (SHIP), CAWST’s WET Centre in Zambia. Students hear about WASH issues in from Tikho’s perspective. They also receive an overall message of hope, as Tikho shares the solutions implemented by her community to prevent disease caused by poor WASH. This slideshow also comes with a lesson plan, games, and action planning resources for students who want to get involved.
