"Learn why DRIVE Inquiry works!"
Full session description:
Ryan Jeffries begins our presentation with an inspiring Drive Inquiry slide show. He shares cross-curricular ideas and strategies that have successfully engaged Gifted, Academic, Applied, IEP, ESL, and FNMI students.
Julie Picken-Cooper has joined our group to present her environmental art project. This is multi-curricular look at the planet, how it operates on the big scale; oceans, forests, the poles, and climate. Using art, the students create journals that experiment with art techniques, writing and mini lessons on the environment. Students create and explore the big subjects with colour, design, pictures, poetry and stories. Students from grade 3-8 have successfully gained knowledge about the environment through art, literacy, geography and science.
Scott Howe then presents a second environment project that is about Safe Drinking Water. In class, we call it the Water Project: Taps OFF. It is a simple, yet successful pilot project that you can use when you return to your school.
Our presentation concludes with time for Q/A. We expect you will exit our workshop ready to start your own "steam-powered" DRIVE Inquiry. See you Saturday, 9 a.m., in Room 123!
Join us at STEAM, April 9, 9 a.m., Room 123. Learn how to create Taps OFF: A Water Pilot Project. Endorsed by LSF, City of London, ON Ecoschools, and SDWF.

Woodland Heights PS- I have a deep nostalgia for the old Industrial Arts days, so I have been using DRiVe Inquiry for the last two years to inspire my students!
