Science Literacy Week 2021
This week is Science Literacy Week! The theme this year is climate. Canada has such a variety of different climates, many of which are experiencing change. Science Literacy Week encourages Canadians to learn about and explore Canada’s climates. We’ve gathered resources from our library you can borrow based on this year’s theme:
- Amazing earth
- Canada coast to coast
- Canada from Eh to Zed. Book two places
- Canada’s land & people series
- Canadian geographic regions series
- Climate change
