The Kid’s Site of Canadian Development

This interactive website assists teachers and students as they examine Alberta’s cultural diversity and is designed to enhance curricular outcomes at the grades three to six level. The settlement theme has curriculum tie-ins to history, national identity, human rights, culture, multiculturalism, language arts and geography.
