River Guardians (Freshwater Teaching Manual)

This manual was designed to provide teachers and youth leaders with the basic information on the earth’s freshwater: its types, areas where they are found, used and threats from both human and natural impacts. It provides a guide that is needed in planning activities and also gives ideas of materials that could be used to supplement these activities. There are also suggested activities, discussion strategies and key vocabulary in each proposed lesson lesson. In addition, this manual may be helpful to the teacher or youth leader in self-reflection, to better assist students in understanding this very important topic as it relates to our beautiful, but threatened freshwater environment.
