We Are The Water Protectors by Carole Lindstrom and Michaela Goade
Inspired by the many Indigenous-led movements across North America, We Are Water Protectors issues an urgent rallying cry to safeguard the Earth’s water from harm and corruption. The activities we have made for this book are designed to be used with students from Years 3 to 6 and look at what the Oil Pipeline is and what it does, where our fresh water comes from and what water polluted by chemicals does when it enters the environment as acid rain. There is a poster design showing that each student is pledging to protect those who cannot protect themselves, a look at how much water students consume as it is the “first medicine” and a final activity to create a relief artwork similar to those that Michaela Goade made for the book which won her the Caldecott award.
There is a video walkthrough of these activities and a request for people who use these resources to help support us if they can so we can continue to make great resources.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
