Teacher’s Introduction to Jurisdictions : Canada

What Jurisdictions: Canada Is

Jurisdictions: Canada is a free, online, interactive learning experience offered by Massive Learning to help teach about the jurisdictional division of powers in Canada. This resource includes multiple exploratory game modes where students can learn about the governmental connections to the things they see in the real world through four different scenes of daily life in modern Canada. It provides students a way to understand their world at a deeper level, appreciate the benefits of society and government, while learning key curricular goals regarding the division of powers and responsibilities.

In addition to its direct focus on governmental powers and responsibilities among Federal, Provincial and Municipal government, Jurisdictions: Canada’s inclusive look at the real world provides support for conversations and learning about other government, social and environmental issues and curricular outcomes.

How to use it
