This resource consists of four .units covering Outcome IN6 of the Saskatchewan Social Studies curriculum: Evaluate and represent personal beliefs and values by determining how culture and place influence them
It focuses on introducing students to the ways in which they, their family, community and province are interconnected and interdependent on other parts of the country and the world and how their culture and location impacts their beliefs and values. The full Grade 6 Social Studies curriculum focuses on finding similarities and differences between the students and youth of the same age in countries bordering the Atlantic Ocean. They should be encouraged to develop their own inquiry questions in order to meet the curriculum outcomes of this course.
All of the outcome indicators require a comparison with youth in a “selection” of countries bordering the Atlantic Ocean. The specific countries and the number selected studied is at the discretion of the teacher. There are several ways in which teachers can approach this challenge:
- allow students, individually and in small groups, to choose the country or countries they wish to study throughout the year. This will give them a full understanding of the lives of youth in the countries they study.
- allow students, individually and in small groups, to choose a different country for each unit of study
- teachers can choose the country to study in each unit
