First Nations

 

Explorers

    Make an explorer kit.
  • Draw a sailing ship.  Write a caption about one of the explorers you read about during this unit.

New France

  • Check out a few books about beavers from your local library and make a beaver puppet.  Why were beavers important enough to fight wars over?
  • After you have read about the fur trade pretend you are a Wyandot tribe and the French have approached you about trading for beaver pelts.  Hold a tribal council meeting where you debate on whether you should trade with them or not.  Use a “talking stick” during your discussion. Only the person holding the talking stick can talk.  Make sure you consider how a decision to trade will change your lifestyle and your relationship with neighboring tribes.
  • Learn about Les filles du roi, or the King’s daughter’s.  Make a brochure convincing French women to immigrate to the Canadian wilderness.

Colonial Wars

  • Jeffery Amherst was the British commander during the Seven Years War in North America.  Louis-Joseph de Montcalm was the French commander during the war.  Learn about each man.  Write a puppet show where the two men meet.  What would they say to each other?  Make puppets and put on your show.
  • Print paper soldiers from the colonial war era and use them in reenacting a battle or a raid.

British Canada

  •  Read an article and watch a video about the Canadian perspective on the war of 1812. Choose a Canadian of the day: a former American Loyalist, a French Canadian, a recent immigrant from Great Britain, a First Nations person, or a recent immigrant from the United States.  Draw a portrait of your person and write their opinion on the war and which side they are on.  You can put your person on either side of the conflict, but they should have a logical and/or compelling emotional reason for their decision.  The writing can be several paragraphs down to a single sentence depending on the ages of the children.
  • Learn about John Macdonell, a hero of the Battle of Queenston Heights in the War of 1812.  Listen to the song “MacDonnell on the Heights” by Stan Rogers”.  Then write a diamante poem about Isaac Brock and John Macdonnell.

  • Learn about one of your ancestors, either someone from this time period or the first ancestor to come to Canada.  Fill out a worksheet with some details of you ancestor’s life.

Canadian Government

Early Canada

Modern Canada

  • The Hawker Hurricane was one of the most famous British planes of WWII.  They were built in Canada and designed by a woman named Elsie MacGill, the world’s first female aeronautical engineer. Read about her. Then, on paper, design a museum display about her life.
  • Watch Building the Alaska Highway for  view of how rugged the terrain is and difficult the job was.

  • Use this lesson plan with printables to learn about the important Battle of Kapyong during the Korean War.
