Boreal Forest: Are we doing enough?

Our grade 6 teachers are in the planning stages for a unit on the Boreal Forest. The guiding question for the study is currently:

How is the Boreal Forest related to the health of the planet?
Students will work through two sections of the study:
1. A mathematical exploration of large numbers, connected to the amount of oxygen needed by humans, and the amount of oxygen produced by trees.
2. A research-based examination of the current situation in Canada’s Boreal Forest, approached through various animal species in the region.
