5 SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

Welcome to the WEEKLY CLASS CHALLENGES section!

Each month we will be posting 4 Class Challenges for each of the 4 weeks. These are designed to be short activities (1 class period or less) to help inspire your students to inquire, investigate, and share their neighbouring community in many kinds of creative ways, and with their current age-appropriate skills — BY KIDS and FOR KIDS.  (Please do not post teacher works.)

Student submissions can be shared on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #akgtcSA, or you can email them to akgtcanada@gmail.com.

This year, submissions for each activity will be posted on the corresponding Weekly Activity page on this website. Classes can search the website or the hashtag #akgtcSA on Twitter and Instagram to learn about the beauty and diversity of communities across Canada’s enormous physical landscape.  

IMPORTANT NOTE

YOU ARE POSTING STUDENT SUBMISSIONS PUBLICLY ON THE WEB.

ALL STUDENT SUBMISSIONS FOR SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

MUST BE COVERED BY WRITTEN PARENTAL CONSENT, and

MUST NOT CONTAIN IDENTIFY STUDENTS IN ANY WAY.

There are NO deadlines for these activities! While each activity is designed to occur in a particular week, you and your class are welcome to participate and submit responses for all activities until June 30th, 2018.

Details of each month’s activities will be posted at the beginning of the month.
