Teaching Resources

Welcome to the Elementary Geography, History & Citizenship Education main page on LEARN. Visit the Societies and Territories site for Cycle 2 and 3 program content and learning strategies. A few teacher resources are also available below.

Feature: Games and Game Design

Using games and game-based strategies is a great way to learn.  Use existing sample games in your class, or learn how you or your students can “design” and develop  games and strategies, as a way to learn, review, share and play during class!

Feature: Intellectual Operations Badge Guides

Learn more about the Intellectual Operations, and ways students can use them in daily life to describe just about anything.  Students can then use these tools and processes to examine and explain the societies and territories they study. 


An Online Mapping Tool

Cartograf is an online tool that allows students and teachers to create and share maps, collect and analyze images, and work collaboratively on class projects.

Curated Professional Development Resources

Welcome to LEARN's Social Sciences media page for professional development suggestions for teachers.

Have you got a favourite Podcast or Youtube station or other online media source you use for PD or in your classes? Tweet it to @paulrombo or contact us directly.

Podcasts are a great way to engage with recent scholarship. History podcasts, for example, feature interviews with historians who are discussing their current or past work.

In many cases, these interviews not only provided for really good information to incorporate into your lessons, but they can also directed you to their books, sites, blogs, etc.” Read more on Matt’s post Podcasts for Professional Development on the LEARN blog.
