Teachers, do your kids struggle with doing research on Canada because the material is too difficult to read and understand?
Would you like to find material that provides information in an easier to read format?
Does this sound like you?
• the materials are too difficult for many of your students to understand
• the students are constantly asking for help
• there aren't enough resources available that are suitable for younger students
• you spend hours searching for materials that will help your students
• you start wondering if doing research is worth all the frustration
Are you tired of:
• kids struggling to read and find information in nonfiction reference books?
• kids getting frustrated and always needing help to locate information for their research?
• searching for suitable material for younger students that has the information needed for research?
I've been there. I often tried to get my kids to do research for various different topics and I spent most of my time either helping them to find materials or helping them to navigate through the material to find the relevant information needed.
I enjoyed doing projects with my students, but it was a lot of prep and energy to do so, especially for social studies. I knew I needed to make some changes.
I created a series of booklets for Canada that were easier to read and full of pictures and maps that helped with the research. I then had a couple of classes try them out. They worked well and the kids felt successful with their research. Finally I had something that younger kids could use.
Research booklets for the 10 provinces and 3 territories
There are individual booklets for each of the provinces and territories with an added booklet of the symbols for each.
English and French versions available
An English version, Canada My Country, and a French version, Canada mon pays, are available as individual booklets and bundles
Easy to read format with photographs to help
Each page features a photograph or map and an easy to read description. If your students are doing research on Canada's provinces and territories and need easy to read material, these bundles are right for you.
Here are some of the features:
• Maps of the province or territory and its location in Canada
• Photographs to go along with the research information
• Information about industries, services, and interesting facts
• A booklet of the symbols for each of the provinces or territories
I created these booklets for my class when I saw how difficult the materials in our library were for them to read. It felt so good to see them doing the necessary research and enjoying it because they weren't struggling with the material.
Don't take my word for it. Here's what others have to say:
Get your Canada Research Bundle now and be ready for your kids to learn about the provinces and territories.
Your younger students can do research successfully.
Let's recap and you will see why these materials work
• All booklets are set up with a similar format
• They contain maps and explain where the provinces or territories are located
• Capital cities and some well-known landmarks are included
• Main industries or services are included
• Interesting facts are included
• Photographs are clear and visually appealing
Time to feel good about your kids doing research!
