The OPP Museum is happy to provide this free fun resource book that is packed with dozens of easily photocopied Blackline Master activity sheets.

Blackline Masters are worksheets and templates for Community Services Officers, teachers, home schooling parents and kids’ group leaders looking for fun age-appropriate lessons and games that tackle a wide range of topics and skills development which challenge kids to develop math, language, communication and drawing talents – all with OPP specific themes and topics.
