Operation Water Spirit (OWS)
OWS is a collection of thematic units and lesson plans which will reinforce Aboriginal culture and perspectives regarding water for Aboriginal students while at the same time provide an Aboriginal perspective to non-Aboriginal students about water issues.
OWS invites teachers to encourage classroom discussions to enable students to gain a closer understanding of Aboriginal issues and perspectives surrounding drinking water. Students will learn that not everyone has safe drinking water and Aboriginal people are the greatest protectors of our environment, encouraging the need for water conservation and source water protection.
OWS is available in English and in Cree.
Lesson plans are available free of charge online.
