For each area of Anash Interactive, the specific learning expectations and outcomes are identified for related English Language Arts, Aboriginal Culture Programs, Art and Social Studies, as well as curricular connections to the Western Canadian Protocol.
Anash Interactive is targeted for use in grades 4-6; however it can be used in a variety of ways for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The diverse elements and the variety of activities at different levels will meet the needs of both elementary and more advanced learners. The CCs have been listed at the grade 4 level only to avoid unnecessary repetition of the curricular connections at lower and higher grades, which are similar but vary according to specific tasks. Students in this range (and higher levels) in English will be able to read the stories and complete the activities quite independently.
