Grade 4 & 5 Linden School

Your opinion matters


You are to post the final draft of your essay on your blog.  You should be writing an essay on one of the following questions:

  • Who are the 3 leaders who want to be premier of Ontario, in the upcoming election and what do they stand for?
  • What are the 3 levels of Canadian government?  Explain.
  • What are the 3 main political parties in Canada?  Explain.

Remember to proof read your work.  You will need to read these out to the class, so practice reading it before you present it.

We have started a new in-class social studies project.  There will be some small elements to do from home, but most of this will be done at school.  The students have chosen a social/environmental issue that is particularly important to them.  If they have not yet finished, they are to post a blog post outlining their chose issue.

It must include:

  • Why I chose it?
  • The history of the issue
  • Who is involved
  • What government organization (in Canada and maybe overseas) is responsible?
  • Who is already helping?  For example, activists
  • Who is not helping and why?
  • What rights are being violated?
  • What changes need to be made?
  • Anything else that they believe is important.

Also, the students have their two most recent timetables challenges in their homework folders.  Every second day we do a short timed challenge.  The ones they get wrong, are the tables they need to work on.
