Focus: Waste diversion, nutrition, natural connection, empathy
The Road Tour consists of a 1 hour performance held in a classroom or gymnasium environment.
The Waste-Less Lunch Challenge consists of a month-long in-class challenge, complete with lessons, as well as an optional final visit where possible.
Eddie is hitting the road to raise awareness about the garbage we humans throw around. Through an interactive presentation including humour, rhymes, songs, puppets and problem solving, children will learn the importance of not littering and keeping their neighbourhoods clean.
The Waste-Less Lunch Challenge is an extension of the already very successful Eddie’s Litterless Road Tour. As part of a month-long challenge to reduce the amount of waste in their lunches, Eddie will introduce the students to a friend who lives at a local wildlife organization. This friend will share his experience with waste and how it impacts his habitat. Students will participate in a variety of teacher led activities that will teach them about waste, health and nutrition, and how to make an impact in their communities. These activities will be provided to teachers with additional resources, support and continued curriculum-alignment.
