This REVISED Canadian Government and Citizenship unit includes levels of government, elections, citizenship, immigration, rights & responsibilities, etc. It now also includes an inquiry-based "Community Mapping" lapbook project to meet the new 2013 Ontario Social Studies curriculum for Grade 5/
The six physical regions of Canada are: The Atlantic, The Great Canadian Shield, The Arctic, The Plains, The Cordillera and the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Region. These six regions are very different from each other
This activity is a great introduction to a Canadian Social Studies unit. I used it in grade 5 with the Ontario Government and Citizenship unit and in grade 4 for the Canada and its Regions unit. A great way to get to know students while also having students identify themselves as Canadians. This product could be used to introduce the unit or mid-unit.
