Our H2Whoa! program on water and Keep Cool program on climate have been translated into French.

We would like to develop versions for other languages in the future.

If you do not teach in French or English, we have had many non-English language immersion teachers use it successfully by doing all of the group activities, brainstorming and discussions in the non-English language.

The hands-on and interactive nature helps engage students and provides plenty of opportunities to practice the language. Here's a quote from a French immersion teacher that used it prior to the translation:

My kids were very excited since the beginning of the program, they participated, they completed activities at home and we had a lot of discussions. I teach French immersion and even with the program in English, we did a lot in French. The drama, suggested activities and our discussions were all done in French. They really enjoyed the videos!" - Christine Labelle, Teacher, Guelph, Ontario
