The lesson examines the work of Bea Zucco who championed the rights of workers afflicted by occupation related illnesses following the death of her husband who had been exposed to asbestos in the work place. This is a unit created by the Labour History Project, a group of retired and current British Columbia teachers collaborating to develop a series of lesson plans, activities, and workshops focused on labour studies and labour history.

Connecting With Nature: An educational guide for grades four to six
Connecting With Nature is aligned with Acting Today, Shaping Tomorrow, the Ontario
Ministry of Education’s policy framework for environmental education. It is designed
to help students understand how their daily choices affect nature. There are 16 cross-
curricular lessons in the educational resource, each comprising idea / activity-based
learning that inspires environmental stewardship in both the classroom and beyond,
culminating in a celebration of all they have learned. In addition, students have the
opportunity, through inquiry-based learning, to create their own “class foundation”
focused on their collective interests and actions.
This resource includes five cross-curricular lessons, each comprising idea/activity-based
learning that inspires environmental stewardship in both the classroom and beyond. These
lessons are suitable for students in grades seven and eight. There is an indoor and outdoor
component to most lessons. Teacher tips are provided as well as guiding questions,
reflection questions, and inspirational quotes.
This resource will help your students discover that, collectively, they can make a difference by
taking a conscious and active role in protecting nature. They will have opportunities to share
what they are learning with their fellow students, families, and community members.
Children need to play — especially outdoors. Direct, unstructured, and creative contact with nature allows children autonomy over their own outdoor experiences. Such experiences help them gain empathy for nature and their local surroundings, and understand their connections to the natural world. Outdoor play doesn’t take away from other learning — it enhances other learning. In the following pages, you’ll find ideas and activities to help connect kindergarten students with the outdoors through play. These activities have been designed to encourage wonder, curiosity, and discussion. They can easily be modified for slightly older children as well.
