H 0 iQ for Educators
We designed this resource to fully explore water and the Lake Winnipeg watershed issues while meeting curriculum objectives. It provides educators with easy to understand information, tools, and resources.
H2O iQ is adaptable to any freshwater lake, as Lake Winnipeg is not the only one with water issues.
To truly protect our fresh waters, we must encourage kids to learn, understand, and appreciate the wonders and the vulnerability of watersheds in general.
