These resources were created to directly align with the Alberta Grade 2 Social Studies Curriculum. Everything you need is included. All 3 units are based on an imaginary ‘trip’ to each community. Each unit relies heavily on a variety of internet links, so that students benefit from visual opportunities to explore each community. The units were designed to focus on skill development, inquiry and research. There are opportunities for structured, guided and open levels of inquiry. This allows the students to synthesize the information and reflect on their learning. It also allows for critical, historical, geographic and creative thinking. Each unit was designed to last approximately 2 months. All website links, worksheets, unit test, project and activities are all included. I have made everything you will need, and have done countless hours of research.

In these units, the students will go on a 'trip' to each community. They will learn about:
Geography
Weather
Early Days
Daily Life
Languages
Community contributors
Traditions
Traditional stories
Holidays
Festivals
Natural Resources
Goods
Service
Jobs
Tourism
Environmental problems

By the end of each unit, the students will be able to answer the driving question - "What makes this community unique to Canada?"

There are some activities that reference the 'Pearson Education - Many Voices' Grade 2 Social Studies program. All 3 books - Looking at People, Looking at Places, Looking at work, and some of the little mini-books. These units compliment these books, but are not crucial to the unit.

All Grade 2 Social learner outcomes of Canada's Dynamic Communities are covered in this unit.

Includes:
- lesson ideas - just follow it and you've got the outcomes covered.
- Printables
- Website links galore - all the research is done for you!
- Higher level questions including inquiry work - guided and independent.
- End of unit project, including a rubric for evaluation.
- Assessments, including an end of unit test and rubric
- Chances for class discussions, partner and cooperative work
- QR codes
- Games to play

These units were designed to cover 2 months for each community. That's 6 months of planning done!! Starting with Meteghan, then Iqaluit, and finally springtime in Saskatoon.

This bundle will save you money and TIME!!!
