The lesson plans include: detailed guidelines for educators, learning outcomes, expectations and objectives, suggested criteria for assessment, instructions for classroom use and worksheets.
Images Canada : Image Trails - Image Trails are pre-selected searches on a particular topic or theme, which yield between 50 and 150 images. When you click on an Image Trail, a selection of images related to that theme will be displayed from the collections of all Images Canada partners.
