For SASKATCHEWAN teachers of grades 6-11 Social Studies Science Health/Health Science
Kids Boost Immunity (KBI) is a free online learning resource for Canadian students that connects local learning to GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP: students earn vaccines for children in need through UNICEF.
The best links to Saskatchewan curriculum are:
• Grade 6 & 8 Health
• Grade 6 Social Studies
• Grade 8 Science
• Health Science 20
Or teachers may find more!
KBI is brimming with carefully curated lessons linked to science, health or social studies curricula on a wide range of topics including:
• Evaluating online information sources
• Global child health inequality and the roles of NGOs
• Germs and infections
• Human body’s immune system
• History and development of vaccines
• Do’s and don’ts of antibiotics
• Spread of infectious diseases & outbreaks
Indigenous Elders and Storytellers lead the development of culturally appropriate content in KBI lessons and the site.
HOW IT WORKS
After completing a lesson, students use a computer or their own device (e.g. smart phone) to take quizzes to earn vaccines in support of UNICEF Canada. The more quizzes a student completes, the more vaccines they earn for kids in another part of the world through UNICEF. It’s that simple!
