3-6 years: Aquatic world and its living beings

3- to 6-year-olds discover the aquatic world and learn that all living things have the same basic, essential need: WATER.

3-6 ans

Kindergarten: Aquatic habitats and their living beings

Students discover different aquatic habitats and the characteristics of the organisms that live there. They evaluate the negative impact of waste discarded in the water on these living things and reflect on ways to prevent it.

As a result of this activity, students become aware of the importance of respecting and protecting the environment.

Grade 1: Water as an essential need

Students discover that living beings are connected by the same essential need, water. They assess the impact of human activity on water used by other living things, and reflect on changes they can make in their daily lives to protect sources of water.

As a result of this activity, students become aware of our responsibility to preserve the health of our planet.

7-8 years: Dynamic water cycle and human impact

7- to 8-year-olds learn about the water cycle and what becomes of waste products resulting from human activities in the environment.

7-8ans

Grade 2: Water Cycle

Students discover that the natural water cycle is changed by human activity and that this impact has changed over time. They assess the consequences of these changes on water quality and they reflect on action plans to maintain clean water in their community.

As a result of this activity, students become aware that the quality of the water they drink is directly related to the quality of wastewater returned to the environment.

Grade 3: Waste in water

Students discover that humans are producing ever more waste that ends up in water. They evaluate the consequences of the presence of waste in the environment, notably on plants, and reflect on action plans to reduce the overall amount of waste produced.

As a result of this activity, students become aware of our responsibility to preserve the health of our planet.

9-12 years: Consequences of human activity on our health and on aquatic ecosystems

9- to 12-year-olds learn how to describe aquatic ecosystems and discover the fragility of biodiversity. They also explore the effects of pollution on human health and the need for water treatment.

9-12 ans

Grade 4: Aquatic ecosystems: Habitats and communities

Students discover that human activity has a direct effect on the stability of aquatic ecosystems. They assess the positive and negative impacts on natural habitats and communities from various perspectives. They reflect on action plans to protect or restore these habitats.

As a result of this activity, students become aware of the fragile equilibrium of the food chain, and our responsibility to reduce the impact of human activity.

Grade 5: Clean water and health

Students discover inequalities related to access to clean water around the world. They assess the consequences on health of the water we use and reflect on action plans to improve the quality of drinking water and increase the number of people who have access around the world.

As a result of this activity, students become aware that the water that flows from their taps is of significant value and that it is our responsibility to ensure that everyone has access to a clean source of water.

Grade 5 & 6: Wastewater treatment

Students discover that human activity uses large amounts of water and releasing polluted water into the environment has a detrimental effect on our health and aquatic ecosystems. They assess pollution generated by various activities and reflect on action plans to minimize their impact.

As a result of this activity, students become aware that everything we discard ends up in the water cycle and that it is our responsibility to maintain the natural balance.

Grade 6: Aquatic biodiversity and species at risk

Students discover that maintaining biodiversity is essential to the balance of our planet. They evaluate the effects of human activity on populations of different species and reflect on action plans to prevent biodiversity loss.

As a result of this activity, students become aware of the high number of extinct or endangered species and our responsibility to protect them.
