In this section are three main sets of resources. There are instructional plans giving ideas and structure for use of the Student Zone resources at the upper elementary level. These address learning outcomes at the grade 4 and 5 Alberta Program of Studies for Social Studies (2005). The second instructional plan organizes the materials in the Secondary Student Zone for use at the Junior Secondary Level. These address learning outcomes at the grade 7 and 9 Alberta Program of Studies for Social Studies (2005). The third section contains some supplementary materials for use in activities related to both the instructional plans. It also contains the answers to the activity sections of both the Elementary and Secondary Student Zones. These include the quiz answer key and the solutions to the Criss Cross and Word Search.
