My First History of Canada by Donalda Dickie and Rudiger Krause Sam will be reading this independently and we will use the questions and activities in the back as a jumping off point.
History Tellers*: www.historytellers.com (I couldn't get this link to work from Turkey and there seems to be no recent posting on their FB page.) I bought this curriculum years ago and used it as a supplement to our studies. This year we'll be finally using the stickers that came with the kit to build a time line of events and aide memorization of the events. We'll also be using it to provide a bit of structure to our studies.
Canada My Country by Donna Ward and Marj Cassidy Used to discuss the difference between political and physical maps. Read aloud Unit 2 Physical Map about each of Canada's regions.
Map Exercise: http://www.lesplan.com/files/CanMap_Lev1.pdf
This map of Canada is a nice size for colouring or labeling. http://www.pm.gc.ca/eng/Colouring-Book
The Story of Canada by Janet Lunn and Christopher Moore may read parts aloud
Canada S&S Learning Materials Sam and I used this before. We may put some of the graphics to use if we decide to do a lap book.
Canada Symbols Kit I got this cool resource from my brother who was a classroom teacher. There's a card for each of the provinces with the coat of arms, flag, floral emblem and some basic information on one side and on the reverse origin of the name of the province, and a short history. Might post these.
Canada Colouring Book - good line drawings but Sam isn't really into colouring

Canada: A People's History http://www.cbc.ca/history/ We've viewed the first 5 of these documentaries. My 12 yo son has really enjoyed them. They're about 90 minutes long, but they are organized in short vignettes. It's easy to stop in the middle and pick up where you left off. I've never watched them before now and I highly recommend them. We found them on YouTube, but I think they are worth the purchase price or borrow them from your local library. We also liked seeing some of our favourite actors!
This very useful PDF breaks each video down into segments and tells where they are on the dvd so it is possible to review certain vignettes and skip others. We'll be using this in the fall.
Canada's Natives Long Ago by Donna Ward and Marj Cassidy We will share the reading of this book and do some of the puzzles and activities together as Sam is interested.
