Students must write the questions clear enough so that another group can understand what they are supposed to do and must be realistic enough that they can find the answer. Students must know the answer before handing the problems over to the other group. Wrap up: Discuss the problems and answers found by each group.

  • Nutrients for Life produces and distributes educational materials on soil science and agricultural sustainability. Their goal is to help Canadians better understand how nutrients increase the health and quality of our soil, improve production of nutritious foods and preserve green spaces.

    With the world population rapidly increasing to an estimated 9 billion people by 2050, food security is a growing issue. Nutrients for Life hopes to address this issue through its educational resources and programs, while working with educators across Canada to ensure that our resources meet the needs of teachers and students.

    They support Canada’s school-curriculum needs with science-based content of the highest quality. To validate its pedagogical value, their educational materials were reviewed by the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest research organization and museum complex.
