Students will learn about various Canadian communities and the changes these communities have experienced over time. The social, commercial, cultural and historical aspects of communities will be combined to provide students with a richer understanding of people's lives in the past. Students will be given opportunities to consider both the similarities and differences between the life in early communities and their own. The suggested activities allow students to develop their research skills, interpret information and use critical thinking.
