Educational Graffiti – COOL Things to Do in the Classroom –

Yellow Fish Road™ Program is a Toronto and Region Conservation initiative that offers students a FREE half-day of curriculum-linked learning.

This hands-on program allows students and participants to get involved in community outreach action by getting out there and DOING something! Yellow Fish Road™ uses a PowerPoint presentation, an in-class demonstration and an interactive aspect to help students understand how our storm drains are directly linked to local water bodies without any purification/treatment.

i.e. everything we dump in storm drains goes directly into our water systems!

After students are educated, they can mark local storm drains with yellow fish and share educational pamphlets to homes in the area, helping educate others about storm water pollution.

* – The program runs from April-October and can be used in schools (grades 2-12), corporate and special interest groups or guides/scouts.

If you want to know how you can get your classroom involved, check out the Yellow Fish Road Website or the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority Website
