NetTrekkers Comic Yearbook #2 - COMING SOON!

After a long delay between blog posts, I promised an update as to what I've been working on this summer. Here's the first ...

NetTrekkers Comic Yearbook #2 - Cover Design
Cover Design: NetTrekkers Comic Yearbook #2

I'm very excited to announce that NetTrekkers Comic Yearbook #2 has been sent to the printer, and will be available for ordering this Fall from LesPlan Educational Services Ltd.

Similar to Book #1, this 30-paged, full-colour comic book reprints all of the NetTrekkers episodes that were published in The Canadian Reader over this past year.

Episode titles include:

1. Prairie Harvest
2. Swimming Upstream (B.C.'s Salmon Run)
3. Digging for Oil (Alberta's Oilsands)
4. Orbit (The International Space Station)
5. Traveling the Ice Road (Diamond Mines in the Northwest Territories)
6. On Goal (The Stanley Cup Playoffs)
7. Hydro Power! (Quebec's Robert-Bourassa Generating Facility)
8. Caribou Close-Up
(Barren-Ground Caribou Migration in Canada's North)

One of the great things about the NetTrekkers comics is that their exciting stories help get young Canadian students reading! In the process, students learn about their country.

Each class set of 15 Comic Yearbooks is accompanied by a comprehensive teacher's guide that includes a literacy lesson plan for each story, plus photocopiable activity, extension, research and map pages. Teachers can use the comic books to support curriculum topics in Geography and Language at the Junior level in Canadian schools!

Teachers can also find details about Book #1 on the Curriculum Services Canada website.
