Great Start to the Year Activity!
Celebrate Canada's 151st Birthday through this critical thinking and evaluating research task: "My Canadian Is Better Than Your Canadian."
Students come up with their own criteria in selecting The Greatest Canadian. Students will research, present, and try to persuade their classmates that "My Canadian is Better Than Your Canadian" and should win out over the others as "The Greatest Canadian."
The project culminates in a persuasive presentation, and then afterwards, the class votes on which Canadian should be crowned, "The Greatest Canadian."
This is a fun and engaging activity that will have your students laughing and excited to vote for their favourite pick for "The Greatest Canadian."
- Rubric provided.
- Designed as a paired research / presentation, though it can be easily adapted to individual or small group.
