Creative student gets an A in Social Studies

March 7, 2013
My creative student created a board game for Social Studies.

Teepee

He had to have 15 questions about a Canadian First Nations group and made 20.  He had to design a board to play on and used the rivers of BC to be the paths to play with a short cut to the end. He had to write the game rules clearly so that his friends would enjoy the game, be engaged and want to play.

He created items for the board that were thoughtful and cute and his friends and the teacher gave him an A for his effort and well-planned project.

Congratulations, Jason!

About Me


Lori I got my Bachelors of Education in the US but was born and raised in Canada. Working in Asia and with immigrant adults and children for 22 years has given me insights into the difficulties they face in a new country and school system. I like to help adults adjust to and explore the rich and diverse opportunities in Canada while also supporting them in their challenge of parenting in a new culture. I love to help children learn English, develop skills, and gain confidence to succeed in school and life.
