Grade 5 – “Wetland, Wildlife & My Community”

“Wetlands, Wildlife & My Community” takes students on a 60-minute virtual exploration through the Wetland Ecosystems and examines how human activities can threaten the survival of wildlife in these sensitive ecosystems. A clean environment is a shared responsibility; the goal of the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society and Capital City Clean Up is to empower students to do their part.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Recognize numerous local examples of wetland ecosystems
  • Identify examples of wildlife species in local wetlands and understand the adaptations that make them suited for wetland life
  • Recognize how human activities can threaten the survival of wildlife in the wetland ecosystem and identify ways to minimize those impacts
  • Recognize how changes in any part of an environment affects the whole environment
  • Recognize that a clean Edmonton is a shared responsibility and everyone must do their part
