The Rick Hansen Foundation School Program provides free, bilingual lesson plans to help start meaningful conversations about disability with students and inspire the next generation of difference makers. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve been adapting our lessons into short, accessible activities for parents to share with their children at home. Explore and download these resources for kindergarten to grade 12 below, and sign up to receive new activities right to your inbox.
We’ve worked with our friends at Treat Accessibly to create these Halloween themed Little Big Lessons. Together, we can find ways to make the spookiest night of the year fun, safe and welcoming for all.
