Fifth graders research Nova Scotia to gather information to relate geography and its effect on the people who live there. For this Nova Scotia lesson, access their prior knowledge to complete a map of Nova Scotia. Students work in groups and create pictures, role play, write a song or others as a clue for a location in the Nova Scotia notes.
Middle schoolers read two articles about the same event: "Plane from J.F.K Crashes off Canada" from the New York Times and "No Survivors from Crash of Swissair Jetliner Off Nova Scotia" from the Associated Press. They then compare the information in each. Once they find conflicting information, they discuss why the information may differ, and they showcase their findings on a poster. Finally, they write a journal entry about how certain assumptions can color one's view.
Students investigate cultural art from Canada by reading about Maud Lewis. In this Canadian history lesson, students identify the work of Lewis by visiting her magazine website. Students identify other heroes in Nova Scotia before creating their own art pieces in the style of Maud Lewis.
Students investigate the effect of climate change on animal population in Nova Scotia. In this environmental science instructional activity, students complete a Nova Scotia map activity and research the causes of global warming in small groups. Students use the Internet to research the negative effects global warming has on animals and write a final presentation of their findings.
