O, Canada!

Geography for the week was all about Canada.We started by looking at the globe, coloring Canada on a map, coloring the flag of Canada, and looking at our continent box, where we found money, an ulu, and an eskimo doll.
Next we visited some online sites:  
Coat of arms
Hoop Dance 
National Anthem (French version)  
Count to ten in French 
They looked at this page of Canadian animals and then painted.  Zahana painted a red fox and Arctic hare.  Rohan chose wolverines.  Elowen joined in too.

For lunch we had poutine and butter tarts.  I used this recipe for the dough.  The lard makes a lovely, flaky crust.  And this for the filling.  I left out the nuts and used all maple syrup instead of using sugar.  The kids loved them.
