Government in Canada: Finding Our More 10 Graphic Organizers and 40 Task Cards is designed for students in upper elementary grades in Canada.
***This resource has been updated in June 2017 to include the new leader of the Conservative Party in the answer key (p. 31).
Ten topics are included: Our System of Government, Our Head of State, Our Head of Government, The House of Commons, The Senate, The Federal Government, Provincial and Territorial Governments, Municipal Governments, Elections, and Citizenship.
The graphic organizers are designed for teachers to use as an introductory tool for the 10 topics included. The topics/questions included in the box and the circle on the graphic organizer pages can be used for discussion points - there is no answer key for these statements or questions.
The task cards can be used in a number of ways - in a centre with the cards cut out and laminated or photocopied as sheets for the students to work through, perhaps putting the pages of task cards and the answer recording sheets in a folder or binder. The task cards can also be used as group work or for review and can be used by students in pairs or groups to quiz each other. I have included a blank task card sheet if you wish to add some of your own. A cover for the students to use for their answer recording sheets is also provided. There is a full answer key (4 pages) for the task card questions.
Please note: I have a similiar item in my store designed for high school civics students. It is just slightly different, revised for older students. Please do not buy both items - please purchase the one most suitable to the level you teach. The high school resource can be viewed here: HS Civics Graphic Organizers and Task Cards
