Pattern Recognition: Grades 4-6

In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of pattern recognition.

Pattern Recognition occurs when you can identify patterns. When you identify patterns, you can create rules that allow actions to be repeated automatically. Pattern recognition c...

Abstraction: Grades 4-6

In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of abstraction.

Abstraction reduces how hard a problem or task is by focusing on what's important. We do that by deciding what the important information is and then removing all the unnecessary details....

Decomposition: Grades 4-6

In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of decomposition - the breaking down of a problem into smaller parts to make the problem easier to solve. Students will also begin to explore the computational concepts of sequences and loops.

Fall Comes to Lac La Ronge

Fall Comes to Lac La Ronge is a 15 minute video produced by Randy Johns and Richard Frisky for KCDC. It details the cycle of the seasons as they slowly transform from the glory of summer to the splendour of fall. How various life forms prepare for fall is highlighted, including the migration patt...

Soldiers Return Home. Episode 7

In the video, Reg Harrison, a boy from the prairies, shares his personal story of challenges, risks and dangers faced while serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a pilot with the Bomber Command during the Second World War.

The Science of Flight. Part 5

This video introduces students to the science of flight and aerodynamics. Students will learn about lift, gravity, thrust and drag -- the four forces that make it possible for an airplane to fly. Professor Peter Plankton and Professor Tess Tube examine Bernoulli's Principle, Newton's Third Law of...
