Canadian Unit - Homeschooling

We are working away on our Canada unit. Right now we are looking more at Canadian animals and ecozones. Jayden seems to be enjoying it. We have a text book called  Everything About Animals that has a LOT of animals all grouped by their continent. It has wonderful illustrations and neat facts. We've been doing the worksheets and readings pertaining to Canada.

I've compiled some links below AND have created an informative little booklet that you can print out and put together to go through with your kids. It works as a bit of a unit overview allowing you to go more in depth on your own for each topic. You need to print both sides of each sheet of paper... A is the first side of the page and B is the other side. It is formatted so that some of the pages print upside down. That way, when you fold it all together, it'll function like a book!

It has a  LOT of content and is FREE!

Check it out here
