This national curriculum is an adaptation of a Manitoba initiative. There are a series of 21 lessons for children aged 8-13, school, home or community based.
The goal of the curriculum is to bring greater awareness to the issues of ageing, greater respect for individuals, particularly older adults, and to encourage on-going community based projects across the generations.
The Tool Kit gives eight excellent ‘tricks of the trade’ with exemplars for involving all of the individuals within the group.
Here is a unique opportunity to have teens that have participated in the Elder Abuse Awareness Teen Kit, to assist in teaching the Across the Generations lessons. Intergenerational mentorship at its best!
To be officially launched soon, we have given you a brief look at what is in store by attaching the Canadian Teachers Magazine article which features one lesson.
