Well, still working at getting Canadian resources together....
I think A Pioneer Story by Barbara Greenwood might be a good resource for year 1 or 2 - it is a fictional family, but is instructive on what live was like in parts of Canada in about 1840.
I have also found "Stories of the Maple Land" (Tales of the Early Days of Canada for Children) by Katherine Young (published 1898) - it seems to be from the viewpoint of a maple tree (at least at the beginning?) - probably also a year 1 or 2 resource....
Just a few thoughts on what I need to find yet.....
Something on the explorers, including Franklin
The War of 1812 - hopefully find a good biography for Laura Secord
Alexander Graham Bell
1867 and the birth of Canada
The Famous 5 and the "Persons Act" - the 5 women that fought for women to be declared Persons
The Halifax Explosion
Banting and Best, and the discovery of Insulin
The Avro Arrow
Older students could watch the CBC History of Canada series - but not for younger students.
New Resource!!! - Canadian History through Literature list - I will be figuring out more through this resource.
As well as other little items to work with Canadian pride - something Canadians don't necessarily work towards.... - Stuff from "Canadian Minutes"
Also, want to make sure I cover Canadian Art..... one artist I tend to do more than once is Robert Bateman - who does amazing Natural Art.
Students will have a "Canadian" Notebook to note items of Canadian Pride
