Whose Water? Whose Power? – Empowering the citizens of Riverwood Valley!

On Friday 24th March, Primary 7B staged a protest against Valley Falls Hydro Company, as part of our Whose Water? Whose Power? context for learning.

As citizens of the fictional Riverwood Valley, we are trying to prevent a dam being built which will cut off our water supply and destroy our community.  We researched protests and how they work, investigated persuasive language, designed placards and banners,  created chants and a protest dance and even built our own website! http://riverwoodsvalley.weebly.

We will find out this week if our protest has been effective in stopping the Hydro Company building the dam!
