Canada C3 in Your Classroom

We have two types of learning resources that we are excited to share with you! Our Spotlight Learning Resources are innovative and interactive resources recently created by other educational organizations. Our Learning Modules are curriculum-linked lesson/unit plans for K-12 students that have been created by teachers from across the country. Both the Spotlight Resources and the Learning Modules align with one (or more) of the Canada C3 themes of Diversity and Inclusion, Reconciliation, Youth Engagement and the Environment.

Spotlight Learning Resources

We want to connect you to innovative and interactive learning resources that have been recently created by other educational organizations across Canada. Canada C3, with permission, is highlighting these Spotlight Learning Resources, so that more teachers and students can engage with and learn from these fantastic educational tools. The curator(s) and organization(s) behind each resource are recognized. You will find interactive videos, including 360-degree footage, ebooks, games, apps and more that will spark and support learning aimed at fostering a deep(er) understanding of Canada. Simply scroll down, click on the featured image, video, or activity to open/enter the resource and explore what it has to offer! Send your Spotlight Learning Resource suggestions to education@canadac3.ca.

Learning Modules

Our education team invited pre-service teachers at partnering faculties of education and teacher education programs and classroom teachers across the country to create curriculum-linked learning modules (i.e., lesson/unit plans) for K-12 students. These learning modules are searchable and browsable by Canada C3 theme, topic/keyword and grade/teaching division. Each teacher contributor and their affiliated school or postsecondary institution are recognized. We will be regularly uploading new learning modules over the coming weeks and months. If you are a teacher interested in contributing a learning module to the Canada C3 Digital Classroom, download the Poster, Guidelines, Lesson Plan Template and Unit Plan Template and send your contributions to education@canadac3.ca.
