Canada Day Challenge

Canada Day Challenge

What makes you proud to be Canadian?

Every year, we ask youth from 8 to 18 years old across Canada to tell us what makes them proud to be Canadian by submitting their best, most dynamic drawings, photos or pieces of creative writing.
For the 2016 Canada Day Challenge, the winners will receive great prizes, including all-expenses paid trip for two to Ottawa to celebrate Canada Day on Parliament Hill: go backstage, meet some of Canada’s most inspiring people, tour museums, galleries, the iconic Parliament Buildings and be part of a special summer exhibit at the Canadian Museum of History.
Winners will also receive the opportunity to work with the amazingly talented team of education specialists from the National Film Board of Canada to create their very own short films about their adventures in Ottawa.
Read more on how to participate in the Canada Day Challenge for more information.

Favorite Recipe Cookbook Assignment

Favorite Recipe Cookbook Assignment

  As a class we are going to create a class cookbook where you will submit a recipe to be part of the cookbook. You should discuss this with your family before choosing a recipe.  

When selecting your recipe consider the following:
  • The recipe may represent a family tradition.
  • The recipe may have been handed down from generation to generation.
  • The recipe may represent your family’s country of origin.
  • The recipe may be distinctly American or represent a foreign country.

Your recipe must meet the following requirements:
  • The recipe must have a minimum of 6 ingredients.
  • This recipe must be healthy and have a combination of three to four of the food groups.   
  • The recipe needs to be for a food “made from scratch”, not simply
a combination of processed foods. The recipe must be approved by your teacher.

1.   This is a multiple step project.  The first step is to choose a recipe and write about it in your language notebook. This will be a rough draft. Your rough draft should include a short summary of what the recipe is and why you chose it. It should also include a list of ingredients and the steps to make the recipe.
                 Due Date: Thursday Feb.25th, 2016
2.   The second draft and final draft of your recipe will be completed in class and must include a picture of what you will be making. This part of the assignment will be completed in class. Please bring in any extra materials you would like to use to decorate your recipe page.

                     We will be working on this part on:  Thursday Feb.25th, 2016
3.    The final step to this project is a day of feasting!  Everyone in the class will make their recipe at home and bring it in on the assigned day for the class to sample. This will take place near the end.

                      Due Date: Monday Feb.29th, 2016

Transitions clearly show how to move from one step of the recipe to the next, but there is little variety.
