Victoria Day Lesson is a great way to teach the holiday to your students. This package includes answer key, multiple approaches to complete the lesson depending on the age of your students.
As part of diversity and understanding of the people we share our planet with. I did a month by month study into different cultures around the world. To help with this unit I used the following books:
- Victoria Day By: Canadian Celebrations Series
- B is for Big Ben By: Sleeping Bear Press
Each month on the day or as close as possible I would read the book or any other appropriate book and complete the follow up paper. We then would put the paper into our portfolio. Also I used these events as part of the timeline in my room in which any and all important events were added. At times even pictures where available were placed on the time line.
The best thing to use during this unit is videos, such God Save the Queen, and a great video was “Learn about Victoria Day” on Youtube.
