Anthropocene Education Program
This summer, fuel your creativity by checking out our Anthropocene Education Program. This online resource offers a wide variety of tools that you can use with your students this fall or during summer school. For example, you can explore 360-degree videos, a Google Earth Voyager story, interactive gigapixels, or watch the full-length documentary film.
Incorporating fieldwork into your class is a great way to engage students in their surrounding environment and bring more hands-on learning to your classroom. Check out our fieldwork teacher’s guide to get started!

Discover our Indigenous resources
#ExploreCan is a program created by Canadian Geographic Education in partnership with Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants and Heritage Canada. There are learning resources and recorded virtual talks available for K-12 Canadian educators. Themes focus on treaties in Canada, science, environmental stewardship, and more, with a larger focus on truth and reconciliation woven throughout the entire program.
Paths to Reconciliation
This website features an interactive map that charts the residential schools not recognized by the federal government’s Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement because they had been run by the provinces or other organizations. It includes links to a series of firsthand accounts and related original-source materials from survivors and family members of survivors of these schools, as well as a film, a feature story in Canadian Geographic, a poster map, educational resources, and more.
Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada
One of the biggest and most important projects that the Society has undertaken to-date is the Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada. Recognizing that the stories were not ours to tell, the RCGS, Canadian Geographic, and Can Geo Education collaborated with a number of Indigenous and ally organizations and educators from across Canada to create this extraordinary atlas and its accompanying educational materials.
