A Crack in the Pavement Series
Digging In

Jesse Ketchum School greens their schoolyard.

A printer-friendly version of this page 19 minutes
Closed Captioned

Directed by Jane Churchill and Gwynne Basen
Produced by National Film Board of Canada

"A tremendous resource for school communities..." Stephanie Stowell, National Wildlife Federation
DIGGING IN follows students from Toronto's Jesse Ketchum School as they take steps towards the greening of their schoolyard. Along the way they get "how-to" advice and inspiration from kids across Canada; from Pauline Public School, where students raised $10,000; from Broadacres School, where a family of wild ducks found a home in their pond; and from Queen Mary School, where the student tip is to "get help from your parents and teachers to make your garden happen!"

A Crack in the Pavement is a two-part video series that shows children, teachers and parents how, working together to green their school grounds, they can make positive changes in their communities.

The other film in the series is:

Growing Dreams - An inspirational overview of school ground greening.

Grade Level: 4-8, Adult
US Release Date: 2001     Copyright Date: 2000
DVD ISBN: 0-7722-1226-6     VHS ISBN: 0-7722-1056-X

"A tremendous resource for school communities interested in transforming their schoolyards into havens for hands-on learning. The voices and stories of the students, teachers and communities' members involved in these projects will inspire all to see the opportunities that await just outside the classroom door."
Stephanie Stowell, Schoolyards Habitat Program Manager, National Wildlife Federation

"Colorful and energetic...Recommended. Both titles provide positive messages and solid information, and could be used with students ranging from kindergarten to high school. This series could also offer valuable viewing to community service organizations."
MC Journal

"Underlines the importance of outdoor places that encourage students to reflect and explore."
Green Teacher

"Sure to get kids thinking about similar schemes."
