While Canada and the United States may be geographically close, there are many differences in our history, traditions, government and even our favorite sports
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 20, 2009
With today's launch of TeacherVision Canada, Canadian educators have access to thousands of time-saving printables and resources created specifically for their classrooms. The latest version of TeacherVision, the Internet's most popular teacher site for trusted online tools, features a 2009 Educators' Calendar for Canadian teachers , customized to reflect events and holidays important to teachers and students in Canada. Each day, the site's main page features noteworthy events in Canadian history that can be used to spark students' interest and creativity.
"While Canada and the United States may be geographically close, there are many differences in our history, traditions, government and even our favorite sports," said Jess M. Brallier, publisher, TeacherVision. "We developed TeacherVision Canada so that teachers have easy access to a customized Educators' Calendar, lesson plans, quizzes and other resources that focus on topics of importance to Canadian students."
The site's Interactive Calendar for Canadian Teachers includes educational activities related to an important event or milestone for every day of the year and is a useful reference and organizational tool that they can use to develop lesson plans. When teachers click on an event, they are directly linked to Canadian teaching resources for K-12 classrooms, such as educational activities, printables, quizzes and lesson plans on that topic.
TeacherVision Canada features numerous printable quizzes and worksheets on topics of interest to Canadians. On Nov. 21, students and teachers can celebrate the birthday of Canadian hockey broadcasting legend Foster Hewitt with a "Hockey Night in Canada" printable word scramble. Or they can use an alphabetizing and sequencing activity to delve into Canada's political history by reviewing the country's governor generals under Queen Elizabeth II.
Several month-long events are highlighted, with accompanying activities, crafts, quizzes and more. For example, in October teachers are treated to a wide variety of resources for celebrating Halloween. With TeacherVision Canada's lesson plans, printables and resources, students can explore the literature, customs and history of the holiday. The site's cross-curricular materials include costume materials, printable Halloween masks, counting activities and vocabulary lessons for integrating Halloween into learning across the curriculum at all grade levels.
Bulletin board ideas, lesson plans and classroom management resources have also been customized so that Canadian teachers can quickly and easily use these TeacherVision materials with their students.
