Free Grade 6 Socials Resource For Ontario!
All our content is free for teachers!
Kids Boost Immunity (KBI) is a Canadian education platform made by educators, for educators. It is made possible through a partnership between the Public Health Association of British Columbia, the BC Ministry of Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada.
All our content provides a unique and tailored interactive classroom experience that is carefully curated to follow the Ontario school curriculum. In particular, our current lessons meet the learning outcomes of social studies grade 6 that related to strand b: People and Environments: Canada’s Interactions with the Global Community.
We provide dozens of classroom activities and teacher resources, each of which are paired with an online quiz that students can take on their laptop, tablet, or phone.
During our pilot, students were so immersed in the content that they continued to engage with the learning outcomes beyond their classroom. Our tests indicated that over 30% of all traffic came from students at home, who voluntarily chose to take optional quizzes after class.
The secret lies in our most unique aspect: For every quiz completed, we will donate life-saving vaccines to UNICEF Canada. The amount of vaccines we donate depends on the student’s performance, further incentivizing students to retain and meet curricular competencies.
With this unique reward, students are able to personally relate their classroom learning within a greater global context. By “earning” real vaccines, KBI gives the opportunity to empower students with a global, life-saving accomplishment.
Furthermore, we provide an opportunity for classes to compete against each other across Canada through leaderboards and classroom team structures. Teachers can encourage their class to become the top earning team across all of Canada!
And perhaps best of all: all of the resources, lessons, and quizzes on KBI are available to you entirely free.
As part of a government sponsored initiative, associated costs are covered by us and our external sponsors. For more details, read the “How We’re Funded” section.
