Communities in Canada: Part 4 - Life in a Settler Community is the fourth part of the Communities in Canada series, to support the 2018 Ontario Social Studies Curriculum for Grade 6. Updates have been made to reflect the terminology and content changes of this curriculum.
This resource supports students as they learn about important economic, political, cultural, and social aspects of life in settler and Indigenous communities, and will also explore what different communities contribute to the elusive "Canadian Identity". Students will explore and create thematic maps to help develop a deeper understanding of patterns and trends in our country. An end-of-unit inquiry task (with rubric) asks students to create a thematic map showing one feature of the Canadian identity.
