The Best of What Canada Has to Offer Celebrating 150 Years!

Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday this year! It's a great time to think about this beautiful place we call home and share some of the most wonderful gifts it has to offer.

Brainstorm

What do you love best about Canada? The landscapes? The people? Food? Celebrations? Values? Choose any three (3) specific features of this country that are important and meaningful to YOU.

Investigate

Conduct research on your three selected features. Use only credible internet sources (no blogs or Wikis!) Take detailed, point form notes describing your features (ex. what it is, where it is, its physical characteristics, its origin and history). Remember to record source information in MLA embedded citations and in a works cited.

Connect

Now that you've described your three features, explain why they are so important to you. Why should they be celebrated and valued by ALL Canadians?

Create

Using Adobe Spark, create a web page or video that shows off your Canadian features. Make use of the elements of design such as images, colour, font, and space. Include properly placed embedded citations. The works cited should be submitted as a separate Google Doc.

Share

Generate a link for your web page or video to share with your teacher. Paste your Adobe Spark link (with your name and a title) onto our shared Google Doc found on D2L. Share your works cited (with your name!) as a separate Google Doc with your teacher.
