I hurried into the local Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps department store to grab1 some last minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and grumbled2 Examtestview to myself. I would H12-211 exam questions be in here forever and I just had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning to become such a drag. Bestexamview I kinda wished that I Bestexamview could just sleep through Chirsmas. But H12-211 exam questions I H12-211 exam questions hurried the best I could H12-211 exam questions through Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps all the people to the toy department. Once Bestexamview Bestexamview again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, and wondered Cisco 300-209 vce if Cisco 300-209 vce the grandkids would even play Bestexamview whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner of Microsoft 70-461 Dumps my eye I saw a little boy about 5 holding a 101-400 exam dump lovely doll.He kept Examtestview touching6 her hair and he held her so gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking over Microsoft 70-461 Dumps Microsoft 70-461 Dumps at the little boy Microsoft 70-461 Dumps and wondered who the doll was for. I watched him turn to Cisco 300-209 vce a 101-400 exam dump woman and he called his aunt by name and said, “Are 101-400 exam dump you sure I don’t have enough money?” She replied a bit Bestexamview impatiently, “You Microsoft 70-461 Dumps know that Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps you don’t have enough money H12-211 exam questions for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that she had to go and get some other things and would be back in a few Bestexamview minutes. Cisco 300-209 vce And then she left the aisle. The boy 101-400 exam dump Microsoft 70-461 Dumps continued Cisco 300-209 vce to hold the doll. Examtestview After a Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps bit Cisco 300-209 vce I Bestexamview asked the boy who the doll was for. He said, “It is the doll my sister 101-400 exam dump wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring it. “I told Microsoft 70-461 Dumps him that maybe Santa was going Cisco 300-209 vce to bring Microsoft 70-461 Dumps it . He said, Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps “No, Santa can’t go where my Examtestview 101-400 exam dump sister is…. I Cisco 300-209 vce have Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. “I asked him where his Cisco 300-209 vce siter was. He looked at me with the saddest eyes and said, “She was 101-400 exam dump gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says Bestexamview that Mamma is going to have to go be with her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. Then 101-400 exam dump the Examtestview boy looked at me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her Examtestview to wait till I got back from the 101-400 exam dump store.” Then he H12-211 exam questions asked me if i wanted to see his picture. I told Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken at the front of the store. He said, “I want my Mama to take this with her Examtestview so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so Microsoft 70-461 Dumps very much and I wish she Microsoft 70-461 Dumps dind not have to leave me.But Daddy H12-211 exam questions Examtestview says she will need to be with my sister.” I saw that the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. While he was not looking I reached into my Microsoft 70-461 Dumps purse and pilled out Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps a Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps handful of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and Microsoft 70-461 Dumps said, “Yes,I Examtestview H12-211 exam questions just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with his and we Microsoft 70-461 Dumps began Cisco 300-209 vce to count it . Of course it was plenty for 101-400 exam dump the doll. He softly said, “Thank you Jesus for H12-211 exam questions Microsoft 70-461 Dumps giving me enough money.” Then Bestexamview the boy said, “I just asked Jesus to give me 101-400 exam dump enough money to buy Cisco 300-209 vce this doll so Mama can Cisco 300-209 vce take it with her H12-211 exam questions to give my sister. Examtestview And he heard Bestexamview my 101-400 exam dump prayer. I wanted to Examtestview ask him give for enough to buy my Mama a white rose, but I H12-211 exam questions didn’t ask him, 101-400 exam dump H12-211 exam questions but he gave Examtestview me enough to buy the Cisco 300-209 vce Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps doll and Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps a rose for my Mama. She loves white rose Examtestview so much. “In a few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled my cart away. I could not keep from thinking about Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps the little boy as I finished Microsoft 70-461 Dumps Microsoft 70-461 Dumps my shoppong in a ttally different spirit than when I H12-211 exam questions had started. And I kept remembering a story I had seen in H12-211 exam questions the newspaper several days earlier about a Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps drunk driver Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps hitting Examtestview Cisco 300-209 vce a car and killing7 a little girl 101-400 exam dump and the Mother was in Cisco 300-209 vce Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps serious condition. The H12-211 exam questions family was deciding on whether to remove the life support. Now surely this little boy did not belong with that story.Two days H12-211 exam questions later I read in the paper where the family had disconnected Cisco 300-209 vce the life 101-400 exam dump support and the young woman 101-400 exam dump had died. I could not forget the little boy and Oracle 1Z0-144 Dumps just kept wondering if the two Bestexamview were somehow connected. Later Bestexamview that day, I Bestexamview could not help myself and I went out and bought aome white roses and took them to the funeral home where Examtestview the yough woman was .And Examtestview there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little Bestexamview sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And Bestexamview in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

ONLINE and INTERACTIVE

The Kids’ Guide to Canada is a children’s online guide to Canada, containing introductions to the land and people of local neighbourhood communities. It is being created BY children and FOR children, with student content posted publicly on an interactive map of Canada by the classroom teacher, under a Creative Commons 4.0 license.

Through the Kids’ Guide to Canada, children across Canada and around the world can learn about the many different cultures and communities of Canada from the unique perspectives of children who actually live there, and classes “on the map” can connect for further learning and collaborations.

 

.      .     

MULTILINGUAL    

Student content is provided in French, English, and Indigenous languages wherever possible.

There are

2 ESSENTIAL PARTS for PARTICIPATING CLASSES

 

.

PART 1:  PREPARATION

A private area on the Kids’ Guide website provides a wide range of teacher resources in both official languages and in a choice of text, video, photo and audio formats.

Student preparation resources are also provided, as well as class activities on 3 different themes: 

  1.  Digital Safety and Citizenship in a Connected World
  2.  Cross-Cultural Communications
  3.  KidsMatter – I Matter!

.

.

.

PART 2:  CONTRIBUTING to the GUIDE

Teachers and their students first investigate their local community, and then create artifacts to introduce the land and people of their area to the children of Canada – and around the world!

Artifacts can take any form – from simple photographs, artwork, poetry, and stories to complex interviews and multi-media community reports. These are uploaded to the guide by the classroom teacher by filling in a simple form.

For digital safety and security reasons, no student accounts are provided, and individual students can not upload content or contact other classes or students. The project only allows for class-to-class connections which can only be arranged by teachers registered in the project.

.

.

.

..

and

TWO OPTIONAL PARTS

 

PART  3   CLASS-to-CLASS CONNECTIONS

Registered teachers can find and connect with the teachers of classes of interest in private, by using their free account in the Digital Human Library.  Here, each teacher’s school contact information is stored on a private, secure, and Canadian server.

Once connected, classroom teachers can arrange for their classes to meet and learn together in the privacy of their respective classrooms, using whatever forms of communication are available to them both.

Ongoing efforts continue to be made to invite and support classes participating from remote areas across the country. However given the small number of elementary classes, and the challenges of communicating from extremely remote communities, opportunities for connections with Arctic classes are very limited at this time. Live national student webcasts from the Arctic and other very remote communities are provided to help meet the interest in learning from these students.

.

PART 4   SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

Optional special weekly activities are offered each week, to help students share and get to know Canada’s many diverse communities from sea to sea.

These activities include:

  • Photo Challenges
  • Class Activities
  • Mystery Class (map) Challenges
  • Community Activities
  • Video and Audio challenges
  • Twitter Chats 
  • and
