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!

Description
Canadian Prime Ministers come to life! There are two series of videos being currently made by this YouTube Channel. The first is a long version of each PM (between 6-12 minutes each) which incorporates all different aspects of history, including indigenous issues, and ends with a critical thinking question. The materials go in depth into each Prime Minister and the issues in his time, including Indigenous history, international issues, and what life was like for people in this time. The second series is called 'Minister in a Minute' and sums up each Prime Minister in one minute. Retrospect aims to add more Canadian content to YouTube. Feedback welcome!!

Description
Coca has been used for thousands of years by indigenous peoples of the New World. The coca bush (from khoka, the Aymara word for tree) grows wild across western South America but was also one of the first domesticated plants in the western hemisphere. It was considered sacred and central to life among the people of the Andes Mountains. They believed the vitamin-rich leaves embodied the spirit of Mama Coca, the nurturing and protective force of nature, and they chewed the leaves to cope with the stresses of life. Today, coca continues to play an important role in the traditions and daily lives of many Andean people: • A man might offer coca leaves to the father of a potential bride • When a child is born, relatives and friends might celebrate by chewing coca leaves together • Coca-chewing plays a role in Quechua carnivals and celebrations • Aymara women chew coca as a source of inspiration for their weaving projects

Description
Europeans had been exposed to tobacco as early as 1560 and used it primarily as medicine. At the time, people believed that tobacco treated or cured many illnesses such as headaches, stomach problems, coughs, epilepsy and cancer. In the following decades, tobacco use among Europeans dramatically increased, not only for medicinal use but also for recreation. For many rulers in Europe, tobacco smoking represented a major social and health problem. English leaders did not make the sale and smoking of tobacco illegal, although many other European countries did. Instead, King James I tried hard to reduce tobacco usage, for example by introducing a massive tax increase in 1604. The price increase, however, did little to reduce English demand for the “noxious weed.” By 1614, the Virginia Colony was shipping tobacco, and production rose sharply in the following years. Ironically, tobacco cultivation would lay the foundation for the success of England's American colonies.
