PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Canada! Learn about our neighbor to the north! Includes a fantastic 10-page complex text to use when teaching social studies. Also includes an anticipation guide with questions to guide your student's reading of the text.

"Canada: Our Neighbor to the North" is a 10-page informational text packet that can be used as a "textbook chapter" when teaching about Canada. In the complex text, your students will learn about the land, water, climate, products, natural resources, landmarks, government, money, and culture of Canada.

While these materials were written to correspond to Florida's Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for 3rd grade Social Studies when I couldn't find anything else appropriate for my students, "Canada: Our Neighbor to the North" is also perfect for 4th, 5th, or 6th graders studying the countries of North America.

You might also be interested in my other units for the Caribbean, Mexico, and the Southeast, Northeast, Southwest, Midwest, and West regions of the United States.

Florida Sunshine State Standards Addressed:

SS.3.G.2.1: Label the countries and commonwealths in North America (Canada, United States, Mexico) and in the Caribbean (Puerto Rico, Cuba, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica).

SS.3.G.2.2: Identify the five regions of the United States.

SS.3.G.2.3: Label the states in each of the five regions of the United States.
