Urban Mining Handbook

 

Urban Mining - Song, Video & Handbook for Educators

KnowledgeQuest Associates is proud to have been the concept consultant and education writer for Urban Mining, an environment education handbook. "The song Urban Mining serves as the learning framework for this handbook. By exploring the lyrics, students will develop an understanding of the power of recycling to build sustainable societies. The handbook makes connections between reducing C02 pollution, climate change and ocean protection. Each verse of the song is supported with a short informative science reading, a colorful comic, illustrations, and two collections of learning activities. 'Things to Think About' contains ideas for connecting students to concepts in the lyrics and readings. 'Things to Do' offers ideas for ex- tending student learning to find real-world solutions to green issues in their classroom, school, home and neighbourhood. As students learn, their sense of developing personal responsibility and social engagement will strengthen their hope for the future. The Urban Mining project has grown from the belief that it is our collective intelligence and human creativity that will find solutions to our challenges, and that the voices of our youngest citizens con- tribute vital messages and ideas."
