Objectives

Students will be able to:

  • Describe a selected species of wildlife and its needs.
  • Suggest effects of climate change on people and wildlife in Canada’s North.

Method

Students adopt identities of inhabitants of Canada’s North and predict how climate change might affect them and their descendants in 50 years.

Materials

Pens and paper for notes, name cards or materials for hats, “Inhabitants of the North Profiles” (see below)

Background

Life in Canada’s North is a complex web of relationships between people, animals, plants, and the land itself. As this delicate balance is disturbed by changing conditions, such as warmer temperatures, pollution, and natural resource extraction, every living thing is affected. Some of the changes expected for Canada’s North are described in the resource sheets.
