Taking a Close Look at Canadian Culture

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In Social Studies, we have recently turned our attention to the idea of “culture.” This is a BIG idea for a Grade 3 student!  So, before we can really examine the cultures of faraway places like Peru, Tunisia, India and Ukraine, we decided it was important to spend a little time exploring the idea of Canadian culture.   To do this we used our new Chromebooks and an app called “MindMup” to create a visual representation of what Canadian culture means to each of us. As you can see, we had some similarities in our thinking AND some differences!

Grade 3’s, you did a fantastic job thinking about Canadian culture, and creating your webs! I am very excited for the unit ahead, but I’m curious, which of our four countries’ cultures are you most excited to learn about? Why?
