We each live in one of the thousands of communities in Canada, all having similarities and differences. Through story, chants, and hands-on activities, students will discover the geographical vastness of Canada and the diversity of its people. While discovering their creativity, students will learn about the symbolism behind the tartan and that the provinces and territories each have an official tartan. Students will discover the maple leaf and the beaver as significant symbols of our country. The stories and activities are easy to assemble and the chants are designed for young readers to enjoy. This Canada lesson provides a teacher and student section with reading passages, activities, rebus poems and match games to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
