Oh Canada…

How we miss you! And how the boys asked so politely to do a FULL unit on you. And with that… time to share our resources!!! It is mostly a book like, but I figured… time to get this puppy posted. Remember to research interesting topics… I would suggest the following:

  • Inukshuks
  • First Nations
  • Beavers
  • Dinosaurs
  • RCMP
  • Kermode Bear
  • The “new” Territories
  • Canada Geese
  • Poutine
  • Maple Syrup

The list goes on! Good luck and enjoy.. eh.

 

BOOKS (and there are a few!)

DVD

  • Families of Canada from the Families of the World series. The link is to the 2015 version. We had the 2005 one from the library.

USEFUL SITES (quick links to their Canada resources… good luck!)

  • Kidzone HERE
  • SuperTeacher Worksheets HERE
  • Today I Found Out (on the flag) HERE
  • FactSlides.com HERE
  • Teachers Pay Teachers Freebie HERE
  • EasyScienceForKids worksheet HERE
  • ISLCollective has some worksheets HERE

Of course we used Activity Village for resources and did lots of colouring. Education.com has a bit, HERE is my collection. It is well worth it to do a search on dinosaurs found in Canada. We used to live near the Royal Tyrrell Museum which is an amazing dinosaur museum with some very new finds. Do check out their site HERE. Macleans also has a 10 coolest dinosaurs article to get you started HERE. Check out Global’s piece on a new dinosaur find HERE.

It is really past time for me to post this! So I am glad to get it up. I am sure we will cover our homeland once again in 2017. With it being a landmark year (150) I will try to find some interesting ways to learn even more about Canada in all her glory. Wish me luck!20160629_190711
