- Iqaluit, Nunavut—an Inuit community in the North
- Meteghan, Nova Scotia—an Acadian community on the East Coast
- Saskatoon, Saskatchewan—a Ukrainian community on the Prairies
Students will learn about the weather, geography, language, history, daily life, and economy of these three Canadian communities. There will also be opportunities to make connections to Alberta and Spruce Grove.
You are invited to be part of our unit in a variety of ways, for example:
- Lending us resources such as books, magazines, or photos you may have on the three communities listed
- Coming to class to share personal stories or artifacts from any of the three communities
- Helping your child gather information from the library, newspaper, radio, TV, or the Internet
- Viewing related displays at museums and art galleries
The students already have a sense of the geographic and weather differences between the communities, and are becoming experts at the communities where Zenia (Saskatoon), Kenojouak (Iqaluit), and Jean-Louis (Meteghan) hail from. We’re looking forward to an exciting unit!
