EngageNY Grade 5 ELA Module 3b, Unit 2: How Canada’s Resources Are Used to Meet People’s Needs and Wants Today
Using what they have learned about how the Inuit people adapted to living in the Arctic, the lessons in Module 3B, Unit 2 ask fifth-graders to research how Canadians today use available resources to meet their needs and wants. Learners read, annotate, and answer text-dependent questions about informational text and watch and discuss short videos. They complete a mini-instructional activity about paraphrasing then complete a note catcher. Scholars share what they have learned from their research about Canada’s natural resources and how industries have changed the environment to end the unit.
