Core Competency Questions:
- How I can generate new ideas about Canada through research and discussion?
- How can I use books, videos, photos, and websites to investigate my questions?
- How can I create a suitcase artifact to present my ideas and show my learning?
Through the lens of geography and culture, we explored the diversity of Canada. After inquiring about the geography, land and climate of Canada, students embarked on a province or territory research project. They deepened their questioning and research skills by learning about the culture, natural environments, wildlife, climate, and Indigenous communities of their region. Students created a multidisciplinary art exploration by making a suitcase containing found and hand made artifacts to represent their learning. Sharing and building these interactive suitcases, enabled students to deepen their understanding about each of the regions of Canada.
