The Canadian Community

In Social Studies we have been exploring and learning about our local community, Morris, MB - another community in Manitoba, and Singapore - where our friend Ms. Krochak lives. Now we would like to explore more about Canada as a country, what it means to be Canadian, how Canada compares to other countries and what Canadians have in common as well what makes us each unique.

First we started a postcard project in which each student asked at least one person they know in Canada to send us a postcard. We brainstormed some questions that they could answer on their postcard. Here is a map of the places our postcards have come from and some information we have learned about their community. You can click on the - to see more of Canada and click and drag to see other parts of the map. Double click on the blue flag to see what we have learned about that community. Or, click here to see a larger version of the map.

So far, we have received postcards from:
The Lemay's in Edmonton, Alberta
Judy in Tisdale, Saskatchewan
Mrs. Laschuk in Langley, BC
"Uncle Jeff" in Bragg Creek, Alberta
Mrs. Hallett in Pickardville, Alberta
The Tope's in Dundas, Ontario
The MacMillan's in Qualicum
"Uncle Jerry" in North Saanich, British Columbia
"Grandma Lemay/Friesen" in Falcon Lake, Manitoba
