Aggregate Educational Resources
designed, created, and provided by the
The BC Stone, Sand, and Gravel Association has developed a number of
elementary-level lesson plans aimed at giving young people a better understanding
of the importance and of the widespread use of aggregate in our everyday lives. The lessons are
interactive and deal with a variety of topics including mathematics,
measurements, and vocabulary. At the teacher's discretion, the lesson plans can
be accompanied by a field trip to a local aggregate facility, where students can
receive a "hands-on" perspective to their studies. (Please, contact the association
if a field trip would assist in your efforts !)
The lesson plans are split into a number of independent files in Adobe Acrobat PDF format.
Each file is meant to be printed separately and included in a more
comprehensive, multiple-lesson plan. We leave the task of
lesson scheduling to the teacher. You may choose to focus only on certain
activities or you may change the order of any of the activities.
We also encourage students to download the lessons here directly - learn what it is to be
in the aggregates industry and how important aggregates are to you !
If you have an acrobat browser plug-in, the files on the linked pages below
may open directly in your browser. If you wish to save the files to your hard disk instead, simply
right-click (windows) or ctrl-click (macintosh) on any lesson link you wish to save, then
choose "Save target as" (Internet Explorer) or "Save link as" (Netscape Navigator).
Opening and printing acrobat files requires the Adobe
Acrobat Reader, a common application essential for internet users.
If you have trouble viewing the lesson plans, you can download the
Acrobat Reader for free from Adobe's
Enjoy learning !
