Grade 7 Social Studies
Please find below the link to the Grade 7 Social Studies Program of Studies. This is the objectives laid out by the province as to what will be taught through the course of the year. We will be using the textbook Voices and Visions: A Story of Canada to cover these objectives. We will also add to this resource through other mediums throughout the course.
The first part of the year will be spent studying the First Nations groups who played an important role in the beginning of Canada. Specifically we will study The Haudenosaunee, The Mi`kmaq and The Anishinabe. This introductory unit is called `Canada Before Confederation` and should take us up until Christmas to complete.
We will work through the information in each chapter by exploring the people invovled, the vocabulary as well as any important events that took place. Assessments will be in a variety of formative and summative assignments.

My sincere apologies for the error in PS. I had entered the Chapter 1 exam as being out of 35, when it was in fact out of 30. All grades should now reflect this.
