Description

Teach about the contributions of different groups of people prior to confederation in Canada with this easy-to-prep package. The groups of people included are the Indigenous People, Vikings, the French explorers, English Fur Traders, Métis, Loyalists, Acadians, and Missionaries.

This historical thinking product includes:

  • complete lesson plans including suggestions to differentiate.
  • 2-3 weeks of activities that include reading, writing, drawing, summarizing, presenting, researching, and exploring.
  • teacher scripts and photos to help with the visual timeline activity.
  • reading passages (for eight different groups). These also come in a Google Slides version so they can be read by your assistive technology programs.
  • student templates.
  • photographs of student examples.
  • extension activities that encourage students to learn more about different people.

This activity starts with an introduction to what students already know about Canada's diversity. Through reading and presenting, students will explore and demonstrate their understanding of some of the specific groups of people that call Canada home now. Students will have the opportunity to summarize their learning through a variety of choices and activities.

This activity aligns with:

  • Alberta Program of Studies for Grade 5 Canadian Identity

This activity supports:

  • any lesson about the different groups of people in Canada prior to confederation. It does not focus on Alberta.

Ninja Note: If you have strong students, it can be used with Grade 4, but we recommend this product for grade 5 and up based on the reading level. Ideas to accommodate a variety of strengths or weaknesses in reading is included and there is a sample of the reading level in the preview.

It has been classroom tested with students in Grades Four and Five with success, though Grade Four students required extra supports.
