With Flying ColoursA Classroom Kit on Canadian Symbols
The "With Flying Colours" education kit has been designed to assist teachers in helping Canadian students come to a greater understanding and appreciation of those symbols and values that define Canada as a country. The kit explores the rich and colourful array of symbols, such as our flag, citizenship, parks and historic sites, excellence in sports and the arts, bilingual and multicultural society and others, that represent Canadians. It also encompasses values, such as tolerance, mutual respect, compassion and acceptance, that are deeply ingrained in the Canadian character.
This self-contained, multi-media kit, including a printed teachers' guide, videos, an audio cassette and a CD-ROM, has components oriented to three age categories: 4 to 7 years, 8 to 11 years, and 12 years and older. It provides the teacher with materials not only to help students understand symbols and values but bring them to life. The kit has been designed to provide teachers with realistic activities for the classroom, supported by audio, audio-visual and print materials that reinforce each other and the key themes identified. Above all, the kit is meant to be user-friendly for the teacher, leading to fun and educational activities for students throughout the school year.
The kit is being made available to each Canadian school at no cost (maximum 2 kits per school.) Further, each school can access two Canadian flags with each kit - a 0.90 m x 1.80 m flag for public display and a 0.45 m x 0.90 m flag to support in-class activities.
