This is a growing unit. The government unit is done but needs revising and this will be complete in one week (As of August 8th). The First Nations unit is done entirely and aligns with the new curriculum. When these are complete I will be raising the price.
ALIGNS WITH NEW CURRICULUM
This unit is now newly revised and contains fun introductory activities and lesson plans that can be left for anyone to teach. Away for a couple days - no problem your unit can be taught in language and science time by anyone.
Bogged down by how you are going to present the new Social Studies Curriculum?
Split Class and no time for dual lessons?
Looking to split your social studies over two terms to get two different marks? No problem!
This is the unit for you. This is designed for the new revised Social Studies curriculum.
This unit is primarily designed so that students can work through it independently without very much teacher assistance. It is designed as a ready to go curriculum so you can either use it on your Smartboard or photocopy the pages right from your download. It is very self-explanatory and could easily be also left for a substitute.
First Nations, New France and Europeans is a social studies unit created to support student learning about the early origins of this country. This inquiry-based unit, which meets the 2013 Ontario Ministry of Education Social Studies curriculum for Grade 5, provides a variety of activities meant to allow students to explore the perspectives of each group of people involved.
There are many pages of text with interesting fact bubbles and pictures that kids will love to read. Students love this unit and it is teacher and student tested. Many of the questions also help prepare students for tests like EQAO or other standardized tests.
This will cover your entire social studies! It will also cover a great deal of art, reading and writing.
NOW - more pages are added! There are 15 more pages added to this unit making it a more complete unit.
This is a complete Canadian government which fully addresses the NEW and revised curriculum to focus on national issues and environmental issues within the government. While this unit is complete in that it covers all of the curriculum it isn't complete to my standards. If you purchase now at this price you will get the unit before it is completed at it's lower price. ** This unit is under revision ** I will be adding additional government knowledge pages and activities in the new year.
The unit makes use of many different inquiry activities to help students learn about:
- the levels of government
- the responsibilities and powers of each level
- minor and major issues the government takes care of
- the different types of government
Included are several rubrics, checklists and self-evaluations for every larger activity students are asked to complete. This makes it very easy to get a mark for the unit and use those marks not only in Social Studies, but also media, reading and writing.
This is an easy unit to teach with step-by-step instructions for activities. Easy to leave for a supply teacher and engaging for kids. Government doesn't have to be boring! The culminating task is a Dragon's den style activity complete with rubrics, research pages, partner logs, bibliography sheet and parent letter.
Also included are fully coloured vocabulary cards that can be put up on a bulletin board or used with the included page of several games to enjoy with students.
