Choosing Canada

Why do people come to Canada? Grade 6 students have been asking that question this term during the Choosing Canada Immigration unit in Social Studies. Students in 6D and 6E interviewed an immigrant–a classmate, a family member, a teacher, a family friend–to discover the factors that led the interviewee to move here, as well as the challenges they faced and the ways in which they’ve contributed to life in Canada.  At today’s Gallery Walk, students visited each other’s displays to learn more and to appreciate these personal stories.
