  • Canadian physical geography:
  • This month, students are doing a research which consists on searching information regarding their ancestors and one of the four cultural group they belong too (French, Natives, Europeans Immigrants and Non-Europeans Immigrants). They have to describe the trip of their family members who established themselves in Canada. Student will use a trunk to do their presentation. The trunk must contain many artifacts. I have provided the students with the list of artifacts they will have to create for this project. Please help your son/daughter by providing them with the name of your ancestors and the reasons why they came to Canada. I have provided students with a list of useful websites they could research with you in case you might not know why and how your ancestors came to Canada. Student will start writing their family journals this Thursday (February 16th). They were given work sheets to complete at home last week. They have been working hard at searching important information about their ancestor’s past.
