Social awareness adds up at The Linden School fair

Elementary-age girls at The Linden School can take on social justice issues without getting out of bedmas.

Students in Grades 1–8 at the Rosehill Avenue all-girls school, near Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue, displayed their social justice-based math projects during the Social Justice Data Fair in the school gymnasium Nov. 20.

Grade 5 and 6 teacher Beth Alexander said the projects were done either by individuals, pairs, groups or as a class, and were meant to have the students “use their math skills to approach a social justice issue.”

Topics included media fairness, animal rights and local produce, among others.
