Environmental Education Initiative

Natural Curiosity

In 2009, The Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study Laboratory School received a considerable grant from the Norman and Marian Robertson Charitable Foundation, anonymous donations, and photographic artist Edward Burtynsky, to embark on a two-year project to advance and disseminate its unique integrated and inquiry-based approach to Environmental Education for elementary schools across Ontario.
The Initiative's main objective was to develop a comprehensive print and web resource aimed at providing Ontario elementary school teachers with reassurance, clarity, and options for putting Environmental Inquiry into practice.

The complete resource, Natural Curiosity: Building Children's Understanding of the World through Environmental Inquiry, launched in 2011 in print and online.
