This is Part 1 of a unit that is based on the new Ontario Social Studies Curriculum for Grade 3. I have split the unit into 4 parts:
Part 1: Municipalities in Ontario
Part 2: Geographic Regions of Ontario
Part 3: Land Use in Ontario
Part 4: Culminating Task and Quiz
In this part of the unit, students will learn about a variety of municipalities in Ontario and for what they are responsible. Students will also explore the connections between municipalities and jobs that are available in certain areas.
Included in this package is an 18-slide powerpoint slideshow presentation containing information and pictures to provide visual references to students about the unit topics, as well as teaching notes. The slideshow is based on the city of Guelph. The powerpoint file is editable, so I suggest saving a second copy of the file and replacing pictures and text as needed with information from your school’s own municipality.
This package also includes a 7 page document of curriculum connections, lesson activities, and a fill-in-the-blank activity sheet to accompany the powerpoint.
