Weekly Special Activities

Welcome to AKGTC WEEKLY SPECIAL ACTIVITIES !

At the beginning of each month, we will be posting the details for one class challenge 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 creative ways with whatever skill level they may have — BY KIDS and FOR KIDS.  

(We know it’s hard sometimes, but please resist the urge to post teacher responses!)

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 also be published on each activity page on this website.

Classes can learn about the beauty and diversity of communities across Canada’s enormous physical landscape by looking through the content on each activity page, or by searching the hashtag #akgtcSA on Twitter or Instagram.

<<     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.
