Building A Nation
In this project, students will review the major factors, significant events and key individuals involved in the creation of the Dominion of Canada in 1867. They will organize and participate in a "Confederation Review Conference" in order to examine how Canada can best serve regional interests and group perspectives in the 21st century. Parts of this project may be useful to educators when used independently.

Climate Change Teacher's Kit
Climate Change fits in all subject areas! Whether it's through science, social studies or geography, students can learn and take action on climate change.

The Government of Canada has prepared this Teacher's kit to provide teachers with information on existing materials that can help to introduce the concept of climate change into the classroom, and to provide ideas to help students make learning about climate change relevant to their daily activities.

From The Mountains To The Sea: A Journey In Environmental Citizenship (Grades 3-6)
Have you ever stopped to consider that the water you used for your shower this morning may have been used by your great-great-great-grandmother to wash her clothes two hundred years ago? Or, some dinosaur may have walked in the same molecules of water which you used to brush your teeth? Every molecule of water that was present when the earth was formed is still present today in one form or another. It may be frozen in ice, suspended in a gaseous state in the atmosphere or it may be in liquid form as in the river which runs through your region.

The Green House Effect (Grade 5)
In this lesson, students will explore some of the factors that affect weather and climate. Students will carry out an investigation in which simulates various environments (i.e. Canadian Prairies, Arctic Canada, Ocean/Coastal) and see the how the greenhouse effect impacts temperature in each of these environments. Groups will have opportunities to pool their data to create a lab report for assessment.

Polar Bears & Ice (Grades 6-12)

Trends In Weather Data - Local Vs. Global (Grade 10)
In this lesson, students examine annual temperature and high/low temperature data for a chosen weather station and compare this to a data set for Global Mean Temperature Anomalies. Pairs of students can be assigned specific years or data sets to analyze and report back to the class. The class results can then be evaluated to see if there is a correlation between global temperature trends and high/low temperature differentials for local areas. This lesson allows students to use real data to look for and compare trends in local and global temperature patterns.
