Community & Politics in Grade 5

Marsh Visit

The class learned about the federal party platforms and used to role playing to better understand municipal government decision making. They predicted the Trudeau win – with the majority of the class voting Liberal in their mock election. They are now using the internet to keep track of how well Trudeau delivers on his platform promises.

Students also explored how communities are lost by learning about the crisis in Syria. Students used persuasive paragraph writing to explore their ideas on how to help the refugees. Student particpation was really amazing!
