Keeper of My Home

Keeper of My Home is a free resource for educators that teaches students about caring for their home and housing health and safety. It provides classroom content and e-learning games specifically designed for First Nation students from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

Teaching children and youth about housing can help improve economic and social conditions. It can bring about positive change through a bottom-up approach. This happens as youth become housing champions and teach their families and communities about housing safety and health issues.

WHO CAN USE IT?

Keeper of My Home was developed for First Nation students, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, attending on-reserve schools. Teachers, as well as other facilitators outside of the traditional classroom environment, can use it.

The program is made up of classroom learning resources and e-learning games, and is built around the following 4 themes:

2. First Nation housing topics
3. Home maintenance
