We turned the outline of our introduction into a first draft and began writing the first main body paragraph.


Reviewed 3.1 and worked on 3.2:

Learning Target: “I can show how the environment we live in influences the way we live.”

Student talk: Which region of Canada is NOT normally suited for permanent settlement? (You can use the map on page 53 as a reference.)

Read section 3.2 (maps and graphics included):

  • Identify vocabulary: urban, rural, ecumene
    • Define it as described in the reading, provide an illustration, list characteristics of the words, including words related and NOT related (opposites) to the vocabulary word.
    • Reflect: What does this word have to do with understanding thematic maps?
  • Identify what three groups make up Canada’s “founding Peoples”. Explain why each group is considered to be a “founding people”?
  • Describe where Canadians live. Use Urban, Rural and ecumene as part of your answer.

Reflection: “I am meeting the learning target because I did _____.”


We reviewed cause and effect and as it applies to the reading assignment for p. 84 & 85:
