We wanted to ensure that the key concepts and student learning outcomes in the Curriculum for a Sustainable Future can be used in Alberta classrooms, and add value to classroom teaching and learning. The answer is YES. This powerful learning story from Chelsey Markel's grades 2, 3 and 4 classrooms at Sarah Thompson School, Rocky View School Division is one of 13 that showcases the use of the Curriculum for a Sustainable Future.
A BIG thank you to the school divisions and teachers that willingly shared their classroom learning stories via video and included a detailed Project Overview.

Thank you to Deb Rougeau-Bell who supported and worked with the teachers on this initiative.
The Weed Lake Project
Although Weed Lake is only 5 minutes away from Sarah Thompson School in Langdon, most of the students had never visited this wetland. This cross curricular inquiry focused on Weed Lake and how the students in Grade 2-4 could connect to their environment and find a way to make a difference in about protecting and caring for Weed Lake and its role in the community.
