Description
Engineering is a broad field that presents many opportunities for creative problem solving and hands-on learning. The engineering design cycle is a framework for thinking that can be broadly applied across all subjects and connects well to the new Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies curriculum. In this activity, students act as engineers and participate in a hands-on STEM lesson related to space science, while utilizing the engineering design cycle. Students will build a “Mars Lander” and test our their designs!

Description
Class 1 A short video documentary, filmed at a Siwash Gathering in Tsilhqot'in territory (near Sugar Cane), introduces the game of Lahal. Learners will listen and watch to learn not only the rules of the game, but also the purpose both past and present. Learners will learn about the materials, the hand signals as well as the object and procedures of the game. Learners will be introduced the the value this game holds for the Tsihlqot'in community both past and present. Learners will then be asked to calculate theoretical probabilities of certain results in the game. Class 2 Learners will be introduced to experiential probability and will have an opportunity to conduct a math experiment in small groups. Follow up Learners will have a chance to reflect on their learning after watching a first nation's dance celebrating Laval. Finally, if the teacher wishes, the actual game of Lahal can be played! Worksheets, links to videos, music, etc. provided.

Description
Students take a census of an outdoor site, and look for organisms that perform different “jobs” in the biotic community. A biotic (or natural) community is made up of the various organisms that live and interact with one another in a particular environment. As in a human community, its members have different roles and depend on each other for survival. In this activity, students examine a study area to find out what organisms live there and the ecological jobs or niches they fill.

Description
This document contains tips and tricks for teaching the newly proposed Environmental Science coursework that will be implemented with the BC Draft Curriculum in the near future. My goal was to provide teaching strategies, assessment suggestions, field trip opportunities, and classroom ideas that are student led learning opportunities. In this document, you will NOT find worksheets or seat work. My hope was to provide invigorating ideas involving Environmental Science that will spark debate and critical thinking in your classroom. This document may be used or adapted for any science class. This was done as a Teach BC Assignment for my education coursework with the UNBC Education Program. I hope you enjoy it!

*This lesson requires the use of an app. Teachers are reminded that they should check their school and district social media policies before implementing this in their classroom.* The digital world can be a positive community for kids and adults to express themselves and their creativity, but it also can have many pitfalls for kids to navigate on their own. At Mazu our users are learning to embrace the positive power of social media in a safe, curated space free of negativity, but we don’t want to stop there! We believe digital citizenship needs to be discussed and taught at an early age, so we invite your class to join our movement. You can help us to facilitate discussions on what it means to be a good digital citizen, and how we all have a part to play in making the online world a positive place. We’ve provided a sample lesson plan for you and some supplementary materials, feel free to use them to spark discussion and to add your own ideas. Become a part of our movement, discuss, create, and inspire what it means to be a good digital citizen!

For millennia, music has had a deep and abiding role in human culture. It affects and reflects historical, social, ethnic, religious, philosophical, and aesthetic contexts and practices. This lesson asks students to consider the role that music has played – and continues to play – in the human experience, in society as a whole as well as in their individual lives. The songs provided all provide opportunity to reflect on these issues, and in particular how music might affect and reflect attitudes towards alcohol or other drugs.

Description
This iMinds lesson is designed to be a part of a larger book study. It seeks to help students build drug literacy as they consider the psychoactive properties of one of our favourite drugs – chocolate. Roald Dahl provides rich content for exploring the positive attractiveness, but also the destructive potential, of psychoactive substances. Exploring this ambivalence with respect to chocolate provides a relatively uncharged setting to learn an important framework for understanding other psychoactive drugs.

At this point in the course, students are already familiar, with the verb “Ser”, as well as greetings, numbers, and the verbs gustar/encantar. The lesson will focus on the main differences between the verbs Ser vs Estar which are a couple of the most used verbs in the Spanish language. Another reason as to why I am focusing on these verbs is the fact that this pair of verbs can be particularly tricky for those who speak English as their first language, because they are both encompassed by the verb “to be”.

This curriculum resource was produced by and for teachers in partnership with the Wilderness Committee, wildlife biologists and curriculum specialists. It’s intended to give students Grades 8 to 12 the opportunity to learn about species at risk in British Columbia in their local environment, understand the threats and identify what they can do to help. Module 1 is an introduction to species at risk while Module 2 specifically focuses on amphibians. Each module uses a project-based learning approach where students will be introduced to the topic, then develop field investigative skills and participate in citizen science. Our resource contains links to valuable multimedia resources as well as ideas to help students connect with species at risk in their community.

Description
This curriculum resource was produced by and for teachers in partnership with the Wilderness Committee, wildlife biologists and curriculum specialists. It’s intended to give students Grades 8 to 12 the opportunity to learn about species at risk in British Columbia in their local environment, understand the threats and identify what they can do to help. Module 1 is an introduction to species at risk while Module 2 specifically focuses on amphibians. Each module uses a project-based learning approach where students will be introduced to the topic, then develop field investigative skills and participate in citizen science. Our resource contains links to valuable multimedia resources as well as ideas to help students connect with species at risk in their community.
