This video addresses the alternative transportation concept while encouraging a healthier lifestyle. The resource supports health, science or social studies units that examine the human and environmental benefits of activities like biking to school. As an Earth Day project a class could organize a school wide "Active Transportation" day that involves students, parents and teachers in travelling to school without cars or buses. This event could also include the local community by inviting participants like the RCMP to promote safety.
Older students could examine how vehicle use affects environmental footprints and compare and describe sustainable transportation methods that are available in their community.
