It will be presented by Jennie Fiddes, a Project Officer in the Education and Learning department at the Library of Parliament and Beth Christine, an educator from New Brunswick and a member of the Library’s Teachers’ Advisory Council. They will showcase many of the unique (and free!) materials available to teachers including videos, online games, virtual reality programs, and engaging classroom activities that will help bring Canada’s Parliament into your classrooms.
