his is a unit that is designed for a split grade classroom for Grade 4 and 5 students. 

These activities align with the new revised curriculum. Much of the focus in the new curriculum is inquiry based teaching and learning. This unit will give students both the basic understanding and background needed for further inquiry as well as scaffolded inquiry activites. 

There are two components

Teacher Directed Lessons

Although the focus in the new curriculum is on inquiry there is still a place for direct instruction. This unit is balanced between direct instruction and inquiry learning. Using a variety of lesson formats, teaching styles, and student activities the direct instruction component of this unit will help to give students the basis for understanding the complexities of their inquiry project. Lessons include shared/independent reading, student case study, discussions, task cards, game boards, video links, online links for flipped classrooms, and student reflections.

Inquiry Project

Students are more engaged in learning if they buy into what they are learning about. Through an inquiry booklet that has components geared specifically for this unit but can also be used for other inquiry studies. Students begin to explore environmental issues in Canada. Students are guided to discover a topic of interest through an interest inventory. Then are given some suggestions that relate to their various interests. With the other corresponding pages the inquiry process is scaffolded to help you guide students through their inquiry. 

This unit also works well with these resources in my TPT store. 

Use the vocabulary from this unit with my Character Traits Literacy Series of Lessons. Or with my upcoming Character Traits Unit: Respect.
