There are thousands of organizations and individuals in Canada who present live performing arts events. They are part of a dynamic, nation-wide performing arts ecosystem. Whether Canadians live in small rural communities or in large cities, they attend performances at arts festivals, in theatres, concert halls and community spaces. Moreover, they recognize the deeper value of the presentation of performing arts on individual, community and societal levels.

Featured lesson plan: Understanding Canadian Weather Extremes

This lesson teaches about the dynamic interaction between North American air masses and the often spectacular and extreme weather patterns that result. Students will explore both the nature and the origin of the five major air masses that affect Canada’s weather and then investigate the dramatic weather results (both thunderstorms and tornadoes) of the interaction between these air masses.
