This assignment is aligned with the Alberta Grade 7 Social Studies program of studies. It addresses outcomes related to the reasons for confederation.
The assignment provides a link and reference to textbook chapters from both gr. 7 SS texts for students to research, and asks students to ultimately summarize the reasons why each province/territory joined confederation. They then create a map modelled on the 'stereotype' maps of Canada (but rather than describing provincial stereotypes they describe reasons for confederation).
An assessment rubric is included along with a map template and a graphic organizer for research.
