Product Description
Introducing Canada.

I created this fun, and informative resource on Canada for American teachers beginning a unit on their neighbour to the north. It in no way covers all the aspects of Canada you might be teaching your students but I believe it is an interesting and lighthearted introduction to the topic.

1. Graphic Organizer: The first activity allows you to find out what your students know about Canada by having them complete an organizer. There are three sections: individual knowledge, what they learned in a group or with a partner, and when the class is brought together, what they added to their knowledge from all their classmates.

2. A general knowledge quiz, in two parts. Some of these questions will be challenging to students outside of Canada! You could use this as a class activity or have the students complete it as a webquest. The second quiz is definitely a bit more difficult than the first.

3. A three page reading passage about the similarities and differences between Canada and the United States. The topics covered are by no means comprehensive and you and/or students might come up with many more. They should spark discussion and teachable opportunities. On the right of the page is a box for notes - you may use this in any way that suits you: for example, you might have students jot down ideas or questions they come up with as they read. There are vocabulary words on the first two pages and a figurative language question on the third page. There is a separate page of comprehension and opinion questions with a short writing activity.

4. A full answer key is included.

If you are teaching a unit about Canada, and have a question, just contact me through the Q and A section here on TPT; I will be more than happy to help. The information in this resource is from my own general knowledge (with a little fact checking).

If teaching a unit on Canada, the following might also be of interest:
