Handout from Start UP workshop- Holly Lloyd.
The handout is missing the social responsibility quickscales. These can be found online at the following BC Ministry website: performance standards for social responsibility
The quick scales written in child friendly language:
Each unit has 6 lessons. With some adaptation, these lessons can stand alone, be integrated into other units or be used in sequence. World maps are only in the level 4 unit and Canada maps are only in the level 5 unit. Please remember mapping is best taught within the context of other topics in Social Studies and these are meant as a starter.
Activité des symboles et légendes – Lac Chien.doc – This is the Dog Lake and the See Island activities from unit 4 translated into French for any immersion teachers:) Hope someone will use it! I love the idea of us all sharing:)
Fabulous! Thanks so much for doing that! -Holly
Mapping Unit5.doc – reviews continents and oceans, symbols and legends; covers Canadian political boundaries, physical regions and distribution of natural resources
province tags.docx– Each province and their flag is located in this document. You can cut them out and paste them onto black cardstock (laminate them, I love laminating) and they can be used along side Holly’s lesson- mapping unit 5. When you are done you will have 13 province cards. They turn out great if you have a colour printer 🙂
For a sample of what they look like printed, matted, and laminated click on the link:sample_of_province_tags.jpg 🙂 KL
Mapping Unit6.doc – For grade 6 & 7
reviews continents and oceans, symbols and legends, Canadian political boundaries; covers scale and distance, longitude and latitude
Directions test.doc – This is a great version of the test that teaches students to read the directions carefully before beginning. It can also be used to teach the skill of scanning a paper quickly. For example, reading the first half of the sentence to make sure it is a direction would quickly help you see that question 13 is different.
