LKSD utilizes a localized and translated K-5 social studies curriculum for our students. The textbooks are based on TCi's Social Studies Alive! but are tailored to create more local relevance for our students.
Supplemental components such as Daily Geography and online resources are used to support the curriculum. Resources can be found in the LKSD Resource Library and within the district's curriculum warehouse.
At DLE sites, social studies is in taught in Y/Cugtun for 45 minutes daily.
At Non-DLE sites, science is in taught in English for 45 minutes daily.
