This guide is designed as a flexible resource for teachers in grades 4 to 8 to support the use of You Are Here in the classroom and outdoor learning environments. While You Are Here connects specifically to Sackville, New Brunswick, the concepts and activities in this guide can be adapted to any community or neighbourhood.
Engaging with the landscape and ideas of place is inherently cross-curricular. As such, You Are Here supports essential graduated learnings and core competencies in Visual Arts, English Language Arts and Social Studies, as well as New Brunswick Global Competencies.
Although this guide is aimed at upper-elementary and middle-school grades, all of the suggested activities are scalable and can be modified as needed for early-elementary and high-school students.
