I originally created this product for the grade 5 Alberta classroom. However, it is general enough that it would easily be used in other upper elementary class studying Canadian History.
The following outcomes from the Grade 5 Alberta Program of Studies are covered:
5.3.1 appreciate how changes impact citizenship and identity:
• recognize how economic and political changes impact ways of life of citizens
• recognize the effects of Confederation on citizenship and identity from multiple perspectives
• recognize the historical significance of French and English as Canada’s official languages
5.3.2 assess, critically, the changes that occurred in Canada immediately following Confederation by exploring and reflecting upon the following questions and issues:
• How did John A. Macdonald and George-Étienne Cartier contribute as partners of Confederation?
• How did the circumstances surrounding Confederation eventually lead to French and English becoming Canada’s two official languages?
• How did the building of Canada’s national railway affect the development of Canada?
• Why were Aboriginal peoples excluded from the negotiations surrounding Confederation?
5.3.4 assess, critically, how economic booms and crashes affected ways of life in Canada by exploring and reflecting upon the following questions and issues:
• How did the First World War contribute to the industrialization and urbanization of Canada?
• In what ways did the Great Depression of the 1930s affect ways of life in urban and rural communities?
• How did the economic boom immediately following the Second World War affect ways of life in Canada?
