This resource supports educators/teachers teaching the grade 9
de-streamed mathematics course and those who are interested in incorporating Project-Based Learning (PBL) tasks in their classrooms.
The projects in this resource promote student leadership, collaboration, innovation, creativity, problem solving and critical thinking, which the Ontario Ministry of Education identifies as important “transferable skills” that will prepare students for the future.
for Grades 7 and 8
This resource contains 3 Inquiry Units which support the Ontario Science and Technology Curriculum (2023) designed around the Engineering Design Process, and honour Indigenous voices as integral to science learning.
Cross curricular connections are natural in inquiry and are denoted throughout. Using authentic sources, examples of how to weave Indigenous Knowledge throughout inquiry to enrich the learning is demonstrated. We enter this work through a Catholic lens and each inquiry provides opportunities for students to pray, reflect, discuss and act.
