KBI is brimming with carefully curated lessons linked to science, health or social studies curricula on a wide range of topics including:

• Human body’s immune system
• History and development of vaccines

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!
