All of the Redpath Museum's teaching resources and guided tours are designed to meet MELS (Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport) Curriculum expectations. Achievements and Competencies are based on the Common Framework of Science Learning Outcomes (K-12) set by the Canadian Council of Ministers of Education (1997).
