Educational Resources
   

Narnian MicroComputer Services offers a variety of Educational Resources in the area of Science and Technology (Gr. 1 to OAK) for schools and school boards. These resources were produced by the owner, Roland van Oostveen, in cooperation with some of the most knowledgeable educational consultants in the province of Ontario. While the subject matter focuses on Science and Technology, the methodologies used are primarily constructivist. See Constructivist paper. Adobe PDF
 

Some of these resources are available in similar form in a variety of textbooks that have been printed over the past five years. See Science9 by ITP Nelson (1995), Science9 by ITP Nelson (2000) and SciencePower9 by McGraw-Hill Ryerson. Other forms can be found in materials produced for independent release such as Student's Science and Invention. Still other resources can be found in the form of articles that were prepared for a variety of uses and are available on this site. See listing:

Finally, a wide range of resources have been produced for the Toronto District School Board. These resource packs consist of units of study for teachers and students in the elementary grades. When these activity guides are used in conjunction with the manipulative available from the S&T Resource Centres, teachers and students will address the expectations set out in the Ontario Curriculum (1999). While these are available only through the TDSB at this time it is hoped that they will be released for wider distribution soon.
