General Outcomes 2.1, "Canada's Dynamic Communities," may be addressed by inviting the class to assemble a pictorial record (e.g., picture book, gallery display, patchwork quilt) about the diverse and unique features of three specific communities—an Inuit, Acadian and prairie community. The focus of the inquiry is on the role of geography, culture, economics, language, heritage and resources in shaping each community. You may prefer to address one community at a time or to compare aspects of all three communities together. Similarly, you may want the class to produce the same or a different kind of pictorial record for each community.
