3 images of Social Studies or Science DVDs available at OPLIt’s hard to believe that we’re now only one month away from the start of a new school year.  At the Ottawa Public Library, we often get questions from parents asking which topics will be covered in the upcoming year and what resources we have available.  Though there are usually many books in these areas, the lists below are meant to highlight some of the DVDs and streaming videos available.  These lists coincide with the Ontario curriculum for grades 1 to 6 in the subjects of Science and Social Studies.  Though they are not comprehensive, they highlight some of the major elements of the curriculum.
