Learn about the history of house structures in Eastern Canada, with connections to home building in general. See how homes adapt to the settings in the Living in the New World section. See a timeline of homes in Canada (similar to homes history in some portions of the U.S.). Learn about the skilled builder trades on the Youthzone. The architectural Glossary is great for learning the names of all those things that stick out or hold up your house! The Homo Renovus section is all about terms and techniques in home renovation.

tag(s): architecture (85), homes (11), structures (24)

In the Classroom

Include this resource during an elementary social studies unit on homes (Homes in the New World). The Prozone includes Teacher materials for Canadian elementary social studies lessons. Include it during an Art or drafting lesson on home design. If you teach about career explorations, this site would be of interest to budding architects and builders from elementary on up. Have students draw or annotate an image of a home, complete with architectural terms, and explain why it fits the location where it is built. In upper level classes, compare the homes found on this site with newer, green designs. Have physics or science students annotate a home image to show the forces upon it and the underlying structures used to keep the home standing. Share the images in a "home show" on your class wiki!

Marvel at the talent of U.S. K-12 student video makers and at the powerful messages they capture in these top 15 videos from the 2015 annual student film festival sponsored by the White House. All the videos focus on themes related to citizenship, volunteerism, community, giving back, service, social justice, or other themes of character and caring. See what students can do with today's technology (even phone or tablet camera), good writing, and a creative desire to communicate a message in three minutes or less. Watch them all or select one or two. You are guaranteed to be impressed by the film makers and to be uplifted by this positive example of what today's youth can do. Don't miss the Archer Hadley Story as an example of the power of one and a revealing look at what "accessibility" really means. If this contest repeats in future years, encourage budding film makers to enter! The general time frame for making videos and entering is October- February. Many of the already-created videos require YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): communities (36), competitions (15), disabilities (21), media literacy (61), service projects (28), video (275)

In the Classroom

Share this collection in social studies or career classes as part of a lesson about giving back to your community. Have student groups select one video and describe its message in one sentence. Then challenge them to think of a citizenship message they would like to deliver on video. Take some class time to analyze why these videos "work": the camera shots, the voices and words, the music. Have groups write a script of their own (digital writing for Common Core!) and produce it as part of a school video festival. If you have a service club in your school or community, they might be willing to help sponsor the festival. Teachers of gifted can use this idea for independent student projects.

Create one frame cartoons or entire comic books -- easily! Start by uploading a funny picture and create a comic from that. You can create your comics anywhere from any device and access them from the same device or any other. The drag and drop interface ensures ease of creation. Choose from a variety of options for characters, layout options, backgrounds, props, captions, and special effects. Choose options to use and drag and drop them onto the comic page. Simply undo or delete objects, move objects backward, forward, add text captions, and zoom in and out of the page. Register with the site (email required) to save, share, and print out creations. You can create a single page comic or full book length comics. You can download as a pdf or even share as an ebook! Some of the instruction videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube. Mobile apps are available, including "lite" (free) versions.

tag(s): comics and cartoons (71), DAT device agnostic tool (171), digital storytelling (153)

In the Classroom

In classes with younger students, use a whole class account under teacher control. In a BYOD classroom, let students set up their own accounts and use the app versions. When studying characterization, create a dialog to show (not tell) about a character. Use the dialog box (bubbles) to explain the sequence of a story, a science concept, or school news! Create a political cartoon. Why not use the comic strips for conflict resolution or other guidance issues (such as bullying). Emotional support and autistic support teachers can work with students to create strips about appropriate interpersonal responses and/or feelings. Sometimes it is easier for students to write it down (or create pictures) than use the actual words. World language and ESL/ELL teachers can assign students to create dialog strips as an alternate to traditional written assessments. Let your creative (or gifted) students take the comics even further by making them into entire books!

In the Classroom

Become a "RAKTIVIST" and start a kindness raid on unsuspecting communities, classes, or schools! Give children power and voice through their actions. Partner this with character education programs to make a difference in all the lives you touch. During social studies, find ways kindness has changed the world. Look for times in which kindness was thwarted, such as during civil wars, dictatorships, or wars. Start a research project on world leaders who have changed the world through nonviolence, education, or generosity. Explain the power of nonprofit organizations and all the lives affected. Look into your own community and school to find needs that are waiting for active, caring participants. Create school or classroom rules to promote the power of kindness. Challenge student to create "kindness" commercials. Share them using a tool such as SchoolTube reviewed here. Emotional Support or Autistic Support teachers may find some of the ideas here helpful for talking about how others feel and ways to show kindness in a very deliberate way.

Even the youngest person can feel down at times. If the sadness continues for too long, however, get some advice for dealing with depression at e-learning for kids. Go on a journey with Lenny and Emma, and help them make choices to deal with their sadness. There are four different options to choose from, and each one gives the positives and negatives for that choice.

tag(s): emotions (34), social skills (21)

In the Classroom

Use this site with individual students on a case by case basis or in a health unit on emotions. Also, setting up rotating stations where students can learn about other social/emotional skills in a week is a good idea. To see other offerings from this same site, check out e-learning for kids - Life Skills, reviewed here. The text portions might be challenging for ESL/ELL and younger students. Partner stronger readers to help or navigate as a class on a projector or whiteboard. Put a link for this site on a classroom webpage or blog for parents and students to use at home.

In the Classroom

Initially, share this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector as part of a relevant health unit , guidance class, or career unit. Suggest this site when students have clashes with others or are experiencing stress in their family life. If you have computers for at least half the students in your class or you are lucky enough to work in a "Bring Your Own Device" school, you might consider sharing the site with everyone and have them use Today's Meet reviewed here, to ask questions. Next set up rotating stations where students can learn about several social/emotional skills in a week. The text portions might be challenging for ESL/ELL and younger students. Pair your weaker readers with strong readers as necessary.
