This Canadian Government: Community Mapping Inquiry Based Social Justice Lapbook Unit
is a resource intended to meet many of the expectations in the 2013 Ontario Social Studies Curriculum for Grade 5
. The resource uses the inquiry model to support students as they take a close look at their local community, discovering its' assets and issues, and then exploring and evaluating how effectively the 3 levels of government have dealt with community issues. (PLEASE NOTE: A French Immersion version of this resource is available here: Canadian Government: Community Mapping Lapbook Unit FRENCH Version
Students will then form "Action Plan Groups" to more fully examine a social or environmental community issue, and create plans to deal with the issues in which they are most interested.
This unit contains 12 complete lessons, along with the templates needed to create their own large "lapbooks" to document their inquiry action plan.
Some of the activities included in this unit are
- Mapping Our Community
- Creating Action Plan Groups
- Asking Good Questions
- Oral History Interviews
- Assessing Government Actions
- Creating a Timeline
