AKGTC WEEKLY SPECIAL ACTIVITIES !
Every week, we will be posting the details for one new class challenge for the week. 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 creative ways with whatever skill level they may have — BY KIDS and FOR KIDS.
* Classes can learn about the beauty and diversity of communities across Canada’s enormous physical landscape by searching the hashtag #akgtcSA on Twitter or Instagram.
* 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.
* We know it’s hard sometimes, but please resist the urge to post teacher responses!
<< DIGITAL SAFETY and SECURITY >>
YOU ARE POSTING STUDENT SUBMISSIONS PUBLICLY ON THE WEB.
Please ensure that any and all submissions of special activities
are covered by written parental consent and please
do not identify individual students in any way.
