Stay tuned for Student Workbooks and Topic Lists by Grade

Here are a few things we are working on:

Historical Inquiry through Heritage Fairs Pro-D Workshop
Monday, December 5

Back by popular demand! This was a powerful workshop we held in February 2016 that we are bringing back. This time, earlier so that teachers have more time to prepare for the Richmond Regional Heritage Fair on May 12-13, 2017.

Heritage Fair Student Workbooks
Christine Wong, Hamilton Elementary, has generously shared her Heritage Fair student workbooks with us as a template as we develop new workbooks for Primary, Intermediate and Secondary. We are aiming to have these ready by December.

Heritage Fair Topics and Resources Lists
Also in the works are topic lists with resources for Grades 4 to 10. These lists will support Big Ideas in the new Social Studies curriculum. We are aiming to have these ready by December.

Stay tuned!

New Look, New Curriculum

What do you think of our new look? We will be making a few more changes to our blog over these next few weeks based on your feedback for more content and more photos. 

Something new that we have already added is the BC Curriculum tab about how to make Heritage Fair work for the new curriculum. Good news - Heritage Fair is made for the new curriculum!
