Alberta Grade 5 Social Studies: Canada: The Land, History & Stories
This book is organized into four integrated, multi-day lessons that can be adopted in many ways to suit the variety of needs and interests in the classroom. The length of the lesson and style is dependent on its content.
For example, Lesson 2: Race Through the Regions has many more activities included because of the differentiation technique where students are able to select tasks that best demonstrate their learning.
Lesson 3: A Walk in the Park is shorter, as it has predetermined tasks that are directed at different reading levels.
