Explanation of Unit:
This is a complete Canadian government which fully addresses the NEW and revised curriculum to focus on national issues and environmental issues within the government. While this unit is complete in that it covers all of the curriculum it isn't complete to my standards. I will be adding some art activities as well as another text and questions for students. This will be done before the end of September. If you purchase now at this price you will get the unit before it is completed at it's lower price.
The unit makes use of many different inquiry activites to help students learn about:
- the levels of government
- the responsibilities and powers of each level
- minor and major issues the government takes care of
- the different types of government
Included are several rubrics, checklists and self-evaluations for every larger activity students are asked to complete. This makes it very easy to get a mark for the unit and use those marks not only in Social Studies, but also media, reading and writing.
This is an easy unit to teach with step-by-step instructions for activities. Easy to leave for a supply teacher and engaging for kids. Government doesn't have to be boring! The culminating task is a Dragon's den style activity complete with rubrics, research pages, partner logs, bibliography sheet and parent letter.
Also included are fully coloured vocabulary cards that can be put up on a bulletin board or used with the included page of several games to enjoy with students.
