Description
Canada & Conflict: A Humanitarian Perspective: Designed by and for high school teachers, this educational toolkit was developed to inform and empower youth to take action toward alleviating human suffering. Using Canadian examples, the revised 2016 edition is a complete toolkit comprised of 6 modules that touch on issues of International Humanitarian Law such as war crimes, refugees, neglected crises, gender inequality, humanitarian principles, mechanisms for justice and youth engagement. Canada & Conflict is directly complementary to academic subjects such as civics, social studies, history, geography, law, language arts and the humanities and is available in both English and French.

Description
Here are Science and Social Studies A/B Year Schedules. These are meant for schools from K-7 who want to have alternating years teaching different Science and Social Studies curriculum. These schedules help with the split classes (i.e. Grade 3/4, Grade 4/5 etc) and make it easier for teachers to not have to teach two curriculums for split classes. Enjoy!

Elections BC - 10 months ago
Description
In this activity, students are asked to reflect upon their own experience with dividing tasks. The students watch two short videos to learn about how government responsibilities are divided and about the impact these divisions have on elections in Canada. Students then deepen their understanding by completing activities at different learning stations, to explore the three levels of government and the different aspects that occur with elections on each level. Finally, students consolidate their understanding through both class discussion and personal reflection; and, are encouraged to explore how they can actively engage in the electoral process.
