It can be tricky maneuvering the grade 6 Heritage & Identity strand.
Fortunately I'm here to help! I absolutely love teaching this unit and I'd like to share one of my favourite projects. Open your class up to great discussions about the history of Canada, and then a project component that is sure to involve your students and parents in the best way.
I have done this unit with a 5/6 split, with both grades receiving the first lesson, then splitting off for separate projects. It works great!
