1.  What the heck is the “Kids’ Guide to Canada”?!?

 

“A Kids’ Guide to Canada – By Kids and For Kids” is an innovative teacher-led initiative providing K-8 students across Canada with the opportunity to build a guide to Canada written BY children and FOR children – and an opportunity to learn and teach each other about the land and people of Canada, from coast to coast to coast.

..

2.  Wow, that’s sound really great – but where do I begin?!?

 

First, you check out

the Kids’ Guide Map itself

 

Then you check out the website

akgtcanada.com

 

and then you

REGISTER!

3. OK, I’m registered. How does my class get started?

 

.

 You get started by remembering to

K.I.S.S….

.

3  OK, we’re on the map…. NOW WHAT?

.

Time to CONNECT with other classes across Canada!

But how the heck do we FIND classes on the map to connect with them?

YOU USE YOUR PASSWORD and LOGIN ID

to find classes in the privacy

of the DIGITAL HUMAN LIBRARY

5 Are there any OTHER ways we can connect with classes across Canada?

 

ABSOLUTELY!

.

1  Participate in SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

 

 

.

 

..

2   Watch STUDENT WEBCASTS to learn about different Canadian communities from coast to coast to coast (previously recorded) 

 

 

..

 

..

 

3  Learn about the new CIRCLES of FRIENDSHIP program, where we are sending hand-sewn Canada Jays out to travel around small circles of classes from all parts of Canada

.

    • Your students can track the Canada Jays travelling from class to class on a map of Canada…

    • … and watch live student webcasts as the jays visit each host “airbnb” classroom

 

NOTE:

You will receive automatic notifications of upcoming Circle of Friendship activities if you are registered in the Kids’ Guide project.
