What's on in February?

Did you know that February is one of the two busiest months on our website?  Our Enjoy pages about Valentine’s Day and Halloween compete yearly for the most use by teachers and students.

St. Valentine’s Day - This popular Enjoy page is filled with resources about the history of St. Valentine’s Day, related literature, crafts, teacher-led activities and online interactives. The Interactive Folio of Romeo and Juliet is a perennial favourite.

Black History Month - Find great resources about Black History in Canada including videos and interactive timelines.  Learn about Viola Desmond, who will be the first Canadian woman to appear on the face of a Canadian banknote, the $10 bill.

Don’t miss out on our Special Editions.

At the Box Office - This has great activities and sites for film studies during the movie awards season.  You’ll find resources about movie-making, including techniques, tools and more.

And if you haven’t checked it out yet, take some time to look at our newest special edition about the Group of Seven, their unique style and connection to Canadian national identity.

Coming up soon, an updated special edition about sea ice.
