Take it to Heart

February 12 and 19, people throughout this country will have the chance to show how they "take Canada to heart." It's all part of Canadians coming together to recognize and celebrate National Citizenship Week, the anniversary of the Canadian flag (February 15), and Heritage Day (February 19). Encourage your students and other teachers to "turn on" to this special week.

Your students can profile their own community in a national celebration of our Canadian identity, heritage and citizenship. Resources, activity suggestions, a guide for citizenship reaffirmation ceremonies, and articles on what other schools have discovered in their community will be posted in weekly updates on the Internet. Share with others what you and your students choose to celebrate in your community. We'll help your students publish their discoveries on the Internet at our World Wide Web site.

Tips, teaching aids and activity guides will be posted here weekly from now until February.
