Trail Lessons Presented to Schools

No fewer than four elementary schools have schoolyards adjacent to the Kawartha Trans Canada Trail.

On August 28th, staff at three of these schools were presented with a set of ten lesson plans. These lessons, intended for grade 4-6 classes and linked to Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum expectations, were commissioned by the Kawartha Lakes Green Trails Alliance with funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion.
