Saskatchewan Guide for Teachers


Twentry five sets of in-classroom lesson plans are available FREE in school libraries and online as part of the Saskatchewan 1905-2005 Guide For Teachers.

We know your time is limited. So, included with the theme packages are lists of web, print and audiovisual resources to consult and Fast Facts pages that sum up volumes of information into a quick, useable reference.

Note: Hard copies of the Saskatchewan 1905-2005 Guide for Teachers are available for $32.95 at any WDM location.

In-Museum Discovery Box programs are available to complement each theme at all four WDM locations. Please contact your local WDM for dates and availability.
