In Social Studies we have been exploring and learning about our local community. Now we would like to explore more about Canada as a country, what it means to be Canadian, how Canada compares to other countries and what Canadians have in common as well what makes us each unique. First we started a postcard project in which each student asked at least one person they know in Canada to send us a postcard. We brainstormed some questions that they could answer on their postcard.
Here is a map of the places our postcards have come from and some information we have learned about their community. Double click on the blue flag to see what we have learned about that community.
