The Toronto Argonauts Football Club is excited to announce its Curriculum Kick-Off. The Kick-Off is an initiative to incorporate the Argonauts, and Canadian football in general, into the school curriculum for students and teachers.
Here, students and teachers will find ministry-approved, football-themed question sheets that will tie in subjects (for a variety of grades) covered throughout the school year, like math and history. The questions will educate students of all ages on the Argonauts and the game of football to prepare them for the June 19 pre-season game!
Students will be presented with the questions and, in some cases, be required to find the answers right here on argonauts.ca
You can download the ministry-approved question sheets by clicking the following link: Curriculum Kick-Off Questions
