Change Maker Series
We want to inspire youth to make change for their local ecosystems. To do so, the Change Maker Series was created to engage students in grades 7-12 with stories about inspiring individuals who are changemakers in their communities. This series of education materials entails a case study and learning activity in which students step into the shoes of a changemaker. Will you inspire changemakers in your classroom?
Fishing for Change
Explore the change-making actions of Lawrence Gunther, a legally blind, professional angler who advocates for fish and the health of aquatic ecosystems through podcasting and his work with Blue Fish Canada. After learning about Lawrence students step into the shoes of this change-maker by developing a podcast with a change-making message.
The Butterfly Effect
Explore the change-making actions of Christina Enright, a monarch butterfly advocate. After learning about Christina, students step into the shoes of this change-maker by researching an organism of interest and advocating for it.
