“Hello” from Canada and “Ainngai” (spelled ᐊᐃᓐᖓᐃ) from Inuktitut!
Inuktitut or Eastern Canadian Inuktitut/ Eastern Canadian Inuit language is the name of some of the Inuit languages spoken in Canada.
The past 2 weeks we have been traveling through Canada. We took a look at Canada and the Inuit people or Eskimos of Northern Canada. We found this to be very interesting and really enjoyed our studies….. here are our highlights!
- Canada on the map
- Identified the provinces of Canada
- Played a Canadian province game I found online.
- We watch a documentary of the Inuit people called Nunavut (Our Land).
- Lapbook: Very Last First Time – This book takes place in Ungava Bay of Eastern Canadian. (lapbook printed from homeschool share)
- Art – inspired by Very Last First Time. Pointillist artistic style is art made up of hundreds of tiny dots of paint.
- Ice Sculpture- everyone’s fingers are dyed, but the girls had fun with it. (idea from Expedition Earth)
- Canadian Baked Blueberry Dessert- We served ours with vanilla yogurt… yum!
- Memory Verses: Matthew 5:11-12
- Window on the World people groups:
- Garifuna and Greenland
- Missionaries and Character Traits:
- William and Catherine Booth: Creativity, Boldness, and Discipline
- George Muller: Faith, Graciousness, and Trust
- scavengers and decomposers
- food chains
- Herbivores, carnivores and omnivores
Here are some science resources we enjoyed.
- Plant Life
- Science Experiment: with leafy celery and white carnations.
- Working together in teams: Monica, our co-op science leader, had the kids work in teams to read over and complete the science experiments together. It worked out well.
Cooking and Art:
- Inuit Soap Carving
- Maple Syrup served over shaved ice
Did you know???
- They think Canada has almost 1,000,000 lakes!! One of them in Manitoba is named Pekwachnamaykoskwaskwaypinwanik Lake! It's a Native Cree name that literally means: "where the wild trout are caught by fishing with hooks." (www.ecokids.ca)
