Sept 1st – Oct 4th #SeasonOfCreation Resources for Educators

All Eco Placemats laid out in a flat collage

Eco Placemats

These nine eco placemats represent a collaborative project with the Ontario College of Teachers. Taking this excellent standards-based educational resource, Catholic Educators across Ontario reflected on how our faith – including insights from Laudato Si – impacts our ecological awareness. These eco placemats may be used as tools for deepening understanding and exploration of environmental stewardship and ecological literacy within teacher education and professional practice.
