Horizon 2067 lesson plans
The National Capital Commission (NCC) and Canadian Geographic Education are bringing the capital to life for students with 13 new lesson plans.
The lesson plans fit with the NCC’s aim of ensuring that the National Capital Region is a “source of national pride and significance” and that the activities, aimed at students from grades five to nine, cover everything from noteworthy locations in Ottawa to pivotal moments in Canadian history. The lesson plans inform students of the NCC’s Horizon 2067 initiative, which aims to improve the capital region by Canada’s bicentennial, with activities such as the Canada’s Capital Board Game, which asks students to create a game that highlights significant monuments and symbolic sites.
“Today’s students have an important stake in the future of Canada’s capital as they will experience the renewed, revitalized and more representative capital of 2067,” says Connie Wyatt Anderson, Chair of Canadian Geographic Education. “These lesson plans will help them in discovering and exploring Canada’s Capital Region.”
To access the lesson plans, which are all free and bilingual, visit www.ccge.org/resources/learning_centre/lesson_plans.asp and select Canada’s Capital: Horizon 2067.
