June count down to Summer!

Happy Canada DayHappy Canada Day (Photo credit: Anirudh Koul)As the lazy days of summer draw near our students may be tiring of school, and want to find innovative ways of being outdoors.  To motivate your students to keep schooling here are some exciting themes to explore educationally.

This June we want to honour, and bless our dads with Father's Day, celebrate Johannes Gutenberg's birthday and the amazing invention of the Printing Press, get our students excited about the Summer Olympics happening in London,  and give you some ideas to share in Canada Day
