Communities in Canada, 1780-1850

We are learning about these three BIG IDEAS in Social Studies:

1. The different communities in early-nineteenth-century Canada influence the way we live today.

2. Social and environmental challenges were a major part of life in all communities in early-nineteenth-century Canada.

3. Canada was already a multicultural society in 1800.

Check out these maps of Canada - especially the ones for 1791, 1825, and 1849.  What changes from one map to the next?

3-D Solids

We are learning to describe and compare these solids.
We use math words such as edges, faces, and vertices (points).  
We can also describe how they might roll, slide, or stack.
Find examples of these solids at home.  Which ones are hard to find?  Why do you think that is?

Paragraph Writing

To write a paragraph, we use a 4-square to organize our ideas.
Then we take our ideas and put them into a "Hamburger Paragraph".  (The Concluding Sentence is the same thing as the Feeling Sentence.)

Remember to stay focused on your MAIN IDEA.
