Canada's 150th birthday marks a national milestone, one that calls on Canadians to not only reflect upon our nation's past but to also help shape our vision for its future. As part of the WE Movement, WE Schools has put together a WE Are Canada Kit that features bilingual curriculum created by educators, for educators. These resources highlight the importance of experiential service learning and empowers students to become active local, national and global citizens.
Teachers can bring the Canada 150 celebration into the classroom thanks to a comprehensive collection of lesson plans, complete with blackline masters. Each lesson package includes subject-specific curriculum expectations across three grade levels and can be downloaded for free here:
cover a variety of themes such as:
- Diversity and Inclusion
You can also download a printer-friendly copy of the WE Are Canada Poster and the WE Are Canada Pledge Poster as seen in the photo above.
Of course, we can't forget about the super cool WE Are Canada limited edition collection of rafiki bracelets, journals, tote bags and more. It's just another way to take action by wearing products that give back in our community. Every item in this unique collection, which ranges from $10 to $50, makes an impact and is made with love in Kenya or Canada. And they would make an ideal end-of-year gift for teacher! Nudge, nudge.
This is our year, Canada. Join the WE Movement and live WE as a family, a school, as colleagues or even as an individual. Visit WE.ca to add your name to the growing list of empowered change-makers today!
