This book (Why I Love Canada) is a sweet book with kids' words about why they love Canada.
If you go to YouTube and type in the name of a province/territory as well as "tourism video" you will find some amazing high quality videos (1-5 minutes long) about different provinces. They usually have majestic arial videos as well as cultural, geographic beauties, and attractions from that province/territory. My students (and I!) really enjoy them.
I use some printables throughout my unit on Canada. We learn about symbols of Canada, animals of Canada and landforms and landmarks.
We read a little reader with photographs of animals, landscapes and landmarks.
And we colour and complete our own booklet to take home.
They also learn to identify Canadian coins. We learn the song "Canada in My Pocket" by Michael Mitchell.
You can project these pages on the screen and complete them together. Alternately, you can have students complete them independently or in partners.
During center time students are able to play a quick game of coin memory.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about my All About Canada unit. If you would like to see my Canadian Symbols unit download, you can find it here.
