How Canada's Government Works. This resource's point of view is Canadian and is designed for Canadian students. It includes:
- a reading text of 560 words that is written in a question and answer format describing the basic structure of the federal government of Canada. The reading level is better suited for grades 6 or even 7, but would well with a strong grade 5 class;
- a comprehension exercise that asks the students to rewrite incorrect statements based on the text;
- two research activities that may be completed using the Internet or as a teacher-guided exercise.
Answer keys are included. The lesson plan is illustrated with graphics or photos that print well in black and white.
Great for an ESL class too!
I also have an expanded version of this unit in my store - "Canada's Government - Informational Text, 5 Activities" for a slightly higher price. Informational Text 5 Activities
