Teaching Resources

What level of engagement are you looking for with TREE?

Here is the landing page for the Teaching Resources for the TREE program. Our resources include modules, lessons, videos, and other helpful documents! As fellow educators, we understand that participation in TREE will look differently depending on your class and the timeframe you have. Take a look at the different options we provide! The TREE database is suitable for Grades 6-12 and we share examples on how it connects to Grade 8 curricula across Canada.

Our lessons and activities may be added to so check back in to see what's new or subscribe to the CLS Education Team's mailing list to stay in the know.  Content may also change to better suit the feedback we receive from educators and students. If you have an idea for a lesson or for content, we would love to hear from you! Please email the CLS Education Team or fill out our feedback form!

**We are currently reviewing our Indigenous content and have taken it down. We aim to create more meaningful and appropriate content. We have developed an Indigenous Engagement Starting Points Resource for teachers/students looking to connect to Indigenous Groups as a starting point.**
