Grade 6 Eng. Social Studies Homework

The grade 6 class has been learning all about Canadian demographics. This includes what the word ‘demographics’ means and also what data sets can we look at to learn more about who Canadians are.

This week students have been working with data sets looking at the total population of Canada and the percentage of citizens that live in rural and urban areas. We learned that the population of Canada from 1851 to present day has shifted from rural to urban areas and what this means for municipal planning for these areas.

If students did not finish the rural vs. urban population questions in class, they were sent home to complete. The question set can be found below:

Grade 7 Eng. Social Studies Natural Disaster Response Plan

Grade 7 has been learning all about the opportunities and challenges that are presented by the physical environment and the ways in which people have responded to them. Part of this conversation has been about climate change and the more extreme weather patterns-which has resulted in more natural disasters.

Each student is now researching a current natural disaster and creating a natural disaster response plan for the community. This includes how the community can mitigate the effects of the disaster in the future.

The instructions for the assignment are below.
