HANDS-ON CANADIAN SOCIAL STUDIES FOR KIDS
My name is Anneke. I am an unschooling momma of two girls.
The Great Canadian Adventure is a journey I created to take with my daughters, and I would love to invite your family along.
My goal with the geography series is for kids to develop an understanding of how people react to and live within in their environment. My goal with the history series is to understand what happens when people, economics, and politics collide.
My hope is that the material is flexible enough to allow you to use it in whatever way suits your family best - either as a tool to engage, or as a jumping off point for further learning.
Having learned about Canada, we are now also inspired to
follow the same strategy to learn about the world, so look
out for The Great World Adventure, coming soon.
HIGH CONTEXT LEARNING
High context learning is when learning tools help students make connections between topics so they aren't viewed in isolation.
Geography is a high context subject. It takes earth sciences (for example the rock cycle), connects it to life science (fossils and dinosaurs) and physical sciences (viscosity and pipelines for oil).
These topics are then also linked with map work to show how geography impacts economic activity (transportation and revenue generation). History is included when we look at how human settlements develop around economies and the use of natural resources over time.
