This teaching resource offers an in-depth coverage of all the indicators for Outcome PA5.1 of the Saskatchewan curriculum –Describe Canada’s political evolution.
Although it has been written to meet the outcome and indicators for the Saskatchewan Social Studies curriculum, it will meet the needs of educators teaching about how Canada evolved into the nation that it is today.
Lessons are presented in the order of the indicators:
a. Investigate the territorial evolution of Canada from 1608 to 1867, and from 1867 to the current era.
b. Differentiate between a province and a territory.
c. Identify on a map each province and territory, indicate the year each joined Confederation, and investigate the circumstances and reasons for joining to the united Canada.
d. Explain the purpose of a constitution, and describe the importance of the British North America Act of 1867, the Constitution Act and the Charter of Rights and Freedom of 1982
e. Explain the push – pull factors that motivated various cultural groups immigrating to Canada during the 18th and 19th centuries (building of the railway, fleeing famine or religious oppression, gold rushes)
