Who are the People of Nova Scotia?
Introduce students to the different cultures of the peoples in Nova Scotia and their customs and traditions.
The students will read text to discover who lives in Nova Scotia and why people move to Nova Scotia. They will use non-fiction text features to enhance their comprehension and make inferences, supported by evidence from the text. They will organize the information into a graphic organizer and communicate their understanding through a media of their choice.
The students will work as a group to create a graphic organizer, generate questions and research the answers about an assigned topic (Mi’kmaq, Acadian, African Nova Scotians, Gaelic). They will use effective, safe internet searches to conduct their research. The students will then independently create a non-fiction text about their assigned topic.
