Students will demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of how the physical geography and natural resources of Canada affect the quality of life of all Canadians, how the people and their stories create a diversity in Canada’s heritage and what events and their factors have changed the ways of life in Canada over time and the impact on citizenship and Canada’s identity. This book was designed to cover expectations in the Alberta Grade 5 Social Studies curriculum. This book is organized into four integrated, multi-day lessons that can be adopted in many ways to suit the variety of needs and interests in the classroom. The length of the lesson and style is dependent on its content. For example, Lesson 2: Race Through the Regions has many more activities included because of the differentiation technique where students are able to select tasks that best demonstrate their learning. Lesson 3: A Walk in the Park is shorter, as it has predetermined tasks that are directed at different reading levels. 86 Pgs.
