Altogether, ManACE has allocated $7200 to this year's SEED Grant recipients and we look forward to sharing the success of these creative and innovative projects in our journal, on this blog and through professional learning opportunities that ManACE hosts throughout the province of Manitoba over the next several months.
Throughout the next few weeks, each of this year's ManACE SEED Grant recipients will be featured here, one category at a time.
We Are Canadian
Congratulations to Lorie Garcia and her students at Mary Montgomery School in Fort la Bosse School Division! Their project involves Grade 4 students conducting interviews with schoolmates, friends, teachers, relatives and neighbours about what it means to be Canadian. They will encourage sharing of immigration stories, past and present, how it feels to be Canadian and how families and individuals celebrate Canadian pride.This project has a tie in to their Skype project and it will foster the development of 21st century learning skills.
