Interdisciplinary Designs for Integrated Learning

Journey with us as we investigate solar systems, crime scenes, wetland ecosystems, symmetry, critter life cycles, weather, bridges, gliders, amusement parks, and more. Using examples of lesson designs that integrate Science, Mathematics, Language Arts, Social Studies, Art, and Drama, we will work in grade groups to extend these designs to create meaningful, experiential learning experiences for our classrooms.

Designing Math and Science Projects that Promote Cross Curricular Competencies

Alberta Education is promoting a set of cross curricular competencies that will be developed and applied by every student across grade and subject areas. The goal is to create engaged thinkers who have more opportunities to pursue learning with direct application to real life situations. Participants will be shown how they can design projects that include elements of numerous competencies while meeting science and math outcomes. Opportunity to discuss and plan how to implement ideas will be provided.
