In Grade 3 Social Studies, our students will explore and compare First Nation, Métis, and settler communities in Canada from 1780 to 1850. They will develop an understanding of the impacts that new settlements had on the environment and existing settlements. Students will learn about landform regions and types of land use in areas of Ontario. They will also explore how municipalities meet human needs and discuss the environmental impacts of those needs. This course is designed to be 50-75 instructional hours.
