This Social Studies curriculum focuses on how the separate colonies of early Canada came together to form one united nation. Your student learner will engage in tactile and concrete learning activities, often including research assignments, writing tasks, and media add-ons. This unit asks students to write an editorial about the success of confederation in unifying Canada. The curriculum includes critical thinking and reflection skills through thought-provoking discussion questions. Student learners are engaged with full colour pages and interesting and varied activities, improving their understanding of the world around them while developing research, reflection, and fine motor skills.

In this 67-page unit, your student learner will study the following topics:

  • The Atlantic Colonies
  • Canada East
  • Canada West
  • The Northwest and Pacific Coast
  • Factors Leading to Confederation
  • Challenges to Confederation
  • Confederation Achieved
  • The Red River Resistance
  • Canadian Railways
  • Confederation in Central Canada & the Maritimes
  • Confederation and the Indigenous
  • First Nations Resistance
  • Women and the Government

As is the case with all of our Schoolio curriculum, this unit includes daily lessons, each with exercises or activities to solidify comprehension, plus answer keys.

Elizabeth Margaret

I couldn't be happier with Schoolio's grade 2 curriculum. The material is easy to use, fun, and engaging. I love how the lessons are open and go, and can really be done anywhere!

We love Schoolio! The curriculum is so easy to follow. My kids like that they can set their own pace and don’t feel overwhelmed. And most of all, the support from Schoolio is amazing!

I have been using Schoolio for grades 4 and 5 and it's been great. I took part in a 'consultation' meeting and learned a lot about their program, which gave me a lot of confidence.
