Themes

 

All activities have been developed by Conservation Halton, Halton Region, the Catholic District School Board, the Halton District School Board, the City of Burlington, the Town of Halton Hills, and the Town of Oakville. The activity centres combine Ontario curriculum requirements with hands-on, fun learning centres.

 

The activity centres focus on four main themes:

  • Water Science and Technology: Students will learn about the water cycle, the physical science of ground and surface water, the treatment and distribution systems and the interactions between water and technology in their daily lives.
     
  • Water Conservation and Protection: Students will investigate how human activity can impact water. They will learn how to conserve, protect and manage water at home, at school and in the community.
     
  • Water Health and Safety: Students will learn about the role of water in human health, and safety around water.
     
  • Water and Society: Students will learn about the history of water, the relationship between people and the uses of water, and how to become stewards of water in their local and global community.
