Are you a Grade 4/5 Ontario teacher, looking for an engaging resource to address the expectations for Strand A related to First Nations, Metis and Inuit people. (This is the second of two parts; Part 1 focuses on a variety of early societies including the Early Aztecs and Six Nations cultures.)
Interactions in Early Societies and Early Canada Part 2: How Do Societies Change? is a Grade 4/5 resource intended to support split-grade teachers as they teach the Strand A units from the 2018 Ontario Social Studies Curriculum.
The blended format of this resource allows teachers to teach one lesson to both grades, while still meeting the curriculum expectations in a structured manner. The societies looked at for each grade level are different, but are explored in similar manners. While you may want to use a variety of supplemental materials, this resource contains student-friendly texts for each of the lessons.
Part 2 was written to address the specific expectations that were included in the 2018 curriculum honouring the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. With that focus in mind, this unit concentrates on the experiences of the First Nation, Inuit and Metis cultures in the area of what would eventually become Canada. The Grade 4 curriculum now asks students to learn about “at least one First Nation and one Inuit society” while the Grade 5 curriculum includes the experiences of the Metis society.
This resource allows students to develop their understanding of the following Concepts of Social Studies Thinking as they explore how societies changed as a result of European influences, and how societies are alike and different from each other and from our lives today:
