Our Canadian Girl Series Activities
The Our Canadian Girl series offers a great opportunity to get your students working on creative exercises and writing assignments. Here are a few suggestions for encouraging your students to use their imaginations and learn how to communicate effectively.
Historical Character Profiles
Get students engaged in history by making the past personal -- invite students to imagine a boy or girl living in another time period. Ask students to write a character profile of a boy or girl who lived in a historical period of interest. Students may wish to draw their imagined historical character as well.
Have students prepare a short report on each of the books in the Our Canadian Girl series. Reports can include:
Have your class write a letter to an Our Canadian Girl author or the series editor and send it care of:
Penguin Books Canada
