Make a Better City Classroom Program

Make a Better City (MBC) is an integrated project for teaching about citizenship, responsibility and community for Alberta Grade 6 Social Studies, Health & Life Skills, Language Arts and Mathematics.

Teachers explore and research with students what it means to be a citizen in a city. Students learn about current issues like graffiti, litter, urban wildlife, backyard chickens, pet ownership and why a city has bylaws. The resource teaches about local government with a focus on the balance between rights and responsibilities.

The program’s goal is to help create a sense of pride for community. The package also includes a white board app and web app.
