A lot of EcoKids are learning English while learning about the environment, especially in the bigger cities. We've created some environmentally focused ESL lesson plans for teachers to use in their classrooms.
We've created 20 new lesson plans and material specific to ESL learning objectives and curriculum delivered through environmental content and themes. There are 8 environmental topics divided by grade and categorized based on the Ontario Curriculum document, English as a Second Language and English Literacy Development Resource Guide according to the stages of Second-Language Acquisition for ESL Students.
