One Simple Act

Motivate Students to Take Action on the Environment with the One Simple Act School Toolkit.
A One Simple Act School Toolkit has been created to help spark the development of young environmental leaders while igniting action in your school. This web based resource supports grades one to six teachers, enabling students to personally commit to one of ten simple acts that protect the environment while at school.  Additional curriculum connected activities and resources provide depth and understanding to these actions, and facilitate even larger change. Pathfinder and Trailblazer leaders can also incorporate this resource into club activities. Led by Alberta Environment, the One Simple Act program encourages Albertans to reduce waste, conserve water and save energy.

Hoses and helicopters is a wildfire version of the popular snakes and ladders game.  Players roll a dice and move across the large playing board.  If they land on a square where their actions prevent wildfires they take a helicopter upwards but if they land on a square where their actions can cause a wildfire they slide down a hose towards the start.
