In 2016 a new curriculum was introduced to BC’s kindergarten to grade 7 (K-7) education system. The renewed science curriculum has strengthened its emphasis on environmental education, ecological literacy, and inquiry-based learning. Due to these updates, the Urban Stewards CD is more relevant now than ever –  including grades K-7! See how the CD connects to your grade here.

Designed for grades K-7, the Urban Stewards CD contains 12 complete units.  Topics covered are: ecosystems, habitat, water, soil, plants, experiments, invertebrates, vertebrates, biodiversity, natural resources, sustainability and climate change.
