Jordan Ingola, a French immersion teacher at École Connaught Community School in Regina, Sask., recently shared some of his students’ designs for the new $5 banknote on Twitter.
For an assignment, Ingola’s class was working on suggestions – complete with artistic concepts – for Canada’s next $5 bill, which is currently in the early stages of its redesign.
“So great to see how teachers are working with their students on submissions for the new $5,” responded the Bank of Canada Museum, which is also on Twitter at “BoCMuseum.”
Several of the students’ designs depicted author and suffragette Nellie McClung while others honoured the Canada goose and Alexander Graham Bell’s invention of the telephone.
