Subject: Another successful collaboration!

Good afternoon,

I would like to tell everyone about another project completed!

After such a resounding success collaborating on Bamboo Shoots, OSBC joined forces yet again with the Royal BC Museum. Rumour has it that a year or two ago, someone from the Ministry of Education came up with the brilliant idea to develop educational resources for the RBCM’s upcoming exhibition: Family: Bonds and Belonging. A brilliant idea, indeed!

Shannon M. and I co-project managed as well as wrote the resources. Shannon tackled the Secondary module and, with help from a Kindergarten teacher,  I wrote the one for the Primary grades.

A big thanks to Farrah for the gorgeous design and layout of the resources. Since the first kick-off meeting for this project was over a year ago, and my memory isn’t what it used to be, thanks to anyone who was involved in this project I may have forgotten about.

Check out the modules at the following links and click on the ‘Teach’ icon.

Cheers,
