Canadian Citizenship – Vocabulary Activities includes 4 vocabulary pages for students to complete along with two activity pages to accompany each of the vocabulary lists (a total of 12 work pages).
There are four sections in this resource:
--- the general topic of citizenship;
--- The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms;
--- becoming a Canadian citizen, and
--- the participation of Canadian citizens in society.
The main focus is to familiarize students with the often difficult vocabulary that must be learned to understand citizenship. There are in total 32 vocabulary words and terms.
To make the topic of citizenship vocabulary a little more interesting for students, I have used two imaginary students on the activity pages - Sophie, who has recently come to Canada, and her overseas cousin, Jadran who hopes to emigrate to Canada with his family (his home country is not specified). Sophie explains the ins and outs of citizenship, and Jadran asks her questions - his questions are designed for your students to answer.
I have included answer keys - the vocabulary answer keys are quite detailed but do serve as a guide. There is enough flexibility that a student might record more or less of the information I have included. Please note, though, that certain items should be covered so that the students can complete the activities.
The information in this product was checked against government websites, publications and excellent books for accuracy.
