Orange Shirt Day occurs on September 30th, and on this day we reflect on why every child matters. Using the Book The Orange Shirt Story written by Phyllis Webstad, this unit gently explores Residential School topics for primary and intermediate students. This unit does not include a digital version of the book, but as it is very popular, you can often find numerous copies of it in your school library or public library.
This unit has been translated into French for French immersion students. The language in this unit focuses on present and past tense verbs, although 1 or 2 imparfait tenses are used. The teacher instructions remain in English, but the printable student booklet is all in French.
In this unit, you get an 11 page no-prep booklet which covers numerous English Language Arts skills and the Social Studies curriculum.
What you get:
This booklet was also created to be accessible for all learners, offering dual sections for writing or drawing, depending on the students' skill levels.
The intended grade level for these activities are Grades 2-6, although Grades 1-7 could also be suitable depending on the class.
