The Science of Race
Following the fascinating trek of Dr. Spencer Wells, an explorer in residents at National Geographic, students explore the roots of ‘race’ and how that connects to information found in DNA through the Journey of Man documentary (120 min, available online or at Winnipeg Public Library). They explore the impacts of this new understanding of the origins and journey of race and how that could potentially change discrimination and racism.

Roof Top Gardens, Climate Change and the World
Through viewing videos, listening to a podcast and looking at pictures, students will learn about rooftop gardens. They will synthesize their background knowledge their background knowledge from Cluster 4: Weather Dynamics to analyze the effects of rooftop gardens on climate. They will work in groups to create a presentation to the principal to advocate for the creation of a roof top garden at school (structure and resource permitting).
Human Rights and Science can help students understand that the Earth supports both human life and human economies, not the other way around. We hope that teachers will use the sample science lesson plans which MARL has created and expand their traditional themes to include human rights education.
