In Like a Lion

You know the old saying “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.”  We’re all waiting for spring, for that moment when we can definitively say “the snow is gone. Bring on spring weather!”  The forecast for Edmonton this week is cold and snow.  I guess we’re getting the lion.
Here’s a look at some of the Enjoy pages and Special Editions that we’ll be featuring during this month of erratic weather, report cards and spring breaks.

Are you interested in Les Rendez-Vous de la Francophonie and Francophonie history and culture in Canada and Alberta? Check out this Enjoy page for links and information.

St. Patrick’s Day
Visit this Enjoy page for St. Patrick’s Day themed class activities and art projects. You'll also find some interesting information about Irish culture, the history of St. Patrick and the Irish in Canada.

The Dietitians of Canada celebrate Nutrition Month in March.  Their theme this year is “Take the Fight out of Food”.  Our Special Edition is filled with interactives and resources that teachers can use during health and nutrition units. There are resources for both elementary and secondary students.

Have a great March.  Next up from us is a fantastic new resource about exoplanets, space colonization and the planets in our own solar system.
