Grade 5 Resources
Students will extend their exploration of rules and societal order to the workings of the various governing systems in Canada including First Nations and Métis governance and those patterned on the Westminster parliamentary systems. Students will extend their understanding of the impact of the differing levels of government and develop a greater understanding of the nature of the treaty relationships between the First Nations and Canada’s federal government. Finally, students will examine the role of diversity and multiculturalism in the development of the Canadian persona/identity.

The Essential Citizenship Competencies (ECCs) provide a framework to explore questions of citizenship. The ECC Wrap is a thinking strategy that presents questions to support reading, thinking, and learning about a text, an experience, or an issue using a structured process. Students are invited to place the situation or issue in the centre and wrap it in ECC questions. As they collaborate to answer these questions, teachers have seen student understanding slowly and steadily broaden and deepen. These questions can be included in your planning, learning, and assessment to deepen students’ justice orientation. Use the suggested grade level option that works best for your students.
