Nelson Educational Publishing is in the process of creating new Social Studies resources for teachers and students. These resources align with the 2013 revised Ontario Social Studies Curriculum and, when complete, will include teacher's guides, student books, activity cards and online resources.
In their sample student pages, this is how Nelson Publishing explains the purpose of Grade 3 Social Studies:
The student book also includes a section on environmental stewardship:
After viewing our school's "Food Drive for Orphaned Wildlife," on the Our Canada Project website, Nelson Publishing contacted Mrs. Black to ask for permission to use the food drive as the basis for one of their Grade 3 Social Studies activity cards!
This is the card layout:
We want to thank Nelson Publishing for catching a vision for our Wildlife Food Drive! We are thrilled that other teachers and students will be learning about the meaningful contribution children can make, by collecting natural foods to support orphaned and injured animals at local wildlife rehabilitation centres!!

This is a really cool idea! Love the fact that Social Studies is being brought to life. I can't state enough how important that is for today's kids. The activities have the students interacting with their environment and that's when real learning occurs! Awesome. 🙂
