Product Description

This blended Grade 4/5 resource is intended to support split-grade teachers as they teach the Strand A units from the 2018 Ontario Social Studies Curriculum.

Grade 4: Early Societies, 3000 BCE-1500 CE

Grade 5: Interactions of Indigenous Peoples and Europeans prior to 1713

The blended format of this resource allows teachers to teach one lesson to both grades, while still meeting the curriculum expectations in a structured manner. The societies looked at for each grade level are different, but are explored in similar manners. While you may want to use a variety of supplemental materials, this resource contains student-friendly texts for each of the ten lessons

This is the first of two parts (the second part is still in progress). This part centres on the big ideas of the curriculum, with the Early Aztecs being the main focus for Grade 4, while the early Six Nations are the focus for Grade 5. While the Grade 5s MUST study Canada’s Indigenous Peoples, I decided upon the Aztecs for Grade 4 because they are also in North America. This sets up both grades well for Part 2, when they will consider the role that European expansion played in affecting indigenous cultures. Part 1 also looks at other societies: Ancient Rome, Ancient China, Ancient Greece, Algonquians, and Mi’kmaq.

The theme of this blended unit is “How Do Societies Survive?” Part 2, once published, will look at what happens when societies start to experience challenges from other groups, such as the European explorers and settlers to North America.

As Part 1 progresses, students took at these and other societies, considering:

Cause and Consequence

Primary Evidence

How to Ask Good Questions

Environmental Features

Beliefs & Religions

Daily Life

Social Organization

Geography & Mapping

PLEASE NOTE: This unit has been put in a zipped file along with a separate file that contains all of the flipbook templates. While the templates are ALSO in the main resource, I wanted to make sure that teachers who simply wanted to print out the needed templates for their students could find them quickly!
