Overview:

Students investigate and describe the communities of early settlers through the experience of the Children of Peace and the community of Hope (Sharon).  Students will be able to participate in hands-on activities, inquiry based learning, and make cross-curricular connections in order to compare and contrast the lives of early settler children and their own lives.

Overall Expectations:

  • Describe the communities of early settlers and First Nations peoples in Upper Canada around 1800;
  • Use a variety of resources and tools to gather, process, and communicate information about interactions between new settlers and existing communities, including First Nation peoples, and the impact of factors such as heritage, natural resources, and climate on the development of early settler communities;
  • Compare aspects of life in early settler communities and present-day communities.

Program Length: 4 hours (including 30 minute lunch break)

Grade 7 - History - British North America/Conflict & Change

Overview:

  • Describe the causes, personalities, and results of the Rebellion of 1837, and about the attempts to resolve them;
