Grade 1: Strand A
Strand A: Heritage and Identity: Our Changing Roles and Responsibilities

The link provided below is a video of a read aloud of "What Is My Role" that will be used as a minds on activity to allow students to begin to analyze what type of roles they have in their community. This read aloud connects to the heritage and identity (Strand A) in the Grade 1 curriculum and more specifically to the overall expectation of A. 1: "describe some of the ways in which people’s roles, relationships, and responsibilities relate to who they are and what their situation is, and how and why changes in circumstances might affect people’s roles, relationships, and responsibilities as well as their sense of self" (OME, 2018, p. 67). This resource connects to the Citizenship Education Framework because it allows students to think about their identity and what role they may play in their community, with respect to others and how each role serves a purpose to meet a specific need. I would show this video at the beginning of the school year in September because students are beginning to adopt the role of being a student, which comes with various roles and responsibilities within the classroom. By being introduced to various roles within a bigger community, students can begin to develop an understanding of what role they play within the community as well (friend, student, sister/brother, helper, citizen etc).

Grade 1: Strand B
Strand B: People and Environments: The Local Community
Rounded Rectangle
The link provided below is a youtube video that describes a variety of roles and responsibilities that people hold within the community. This youtube video connects to the people and environments (Strand B) in the Grade 1 curriculum and more specifically, the overall expectation of B. 1: “describe some aspects of the interrelationship between people and the natural and built features of their community, with a focus on how the features of and services in the community meet people’s needs” (OME, 2018, p. 67). This resource connects to the Citizenship Education Framework because it allows students to think about their identity and what role they may play in their community, with respect to others and how each role serves a purpose to meet a specific need. I would show this video at the beginning of the school year in September because students are beginning to adopt the role of being a student and they can begin to analyze how others around them influence their community through the job or role they hold.

Grade 2: Strand A
Strand A: Heritage and Identity: Changing Family and Community Traditions
Rounded Rectangle
This link provides a lesson plan outline for a 100 minute block of learning that allows students to 
understand that everyone has different roles, customs and traditions during the holiday season. This lesson plan connects to the heritage and identity (Strand A) in the Grade 1 curriculum, more specifically, to the specific expectation A. 1: “compare some significant traditions and celebrations among diverse groups and at different times, and identify some of the reasons for changes in these traditions/ celebrations” (OME, 2018, p. 76). This resource links to the Citizenship Education Framework because the lesson activity asks that students think about their own attributes with respect to the holidays they celebrate and develop an understanding that their peers may celebrate holidays that are different from their own. I would use this activity as a part of a larger unit plan of “Holidays Around The World” that would begin near the end of November before the holiday season. With this lesson activity, each time the students “visit” a new country, they will receive a paper stamp to glue in their paper bag “suitcase”. At the end of visiting each country, students will have to show their understanding by writing down one fact they learned about the countries holidays and their traditions. This resource is valuable before the holiday season because it can allow students to be aware and inclusive of their classmates.

Grade 2: Strand B
Strand B: People and Environments: Global Communities
Rounded Rectangle
The video link below is a youtube video that describes the climate, features, and ways of life of communities located in Iqaluit, Nunavut. This video connects to the people and environments (Strand B) of the Grade 2 social studies curriculum, more specifically to the overall expectation of B. 3: "identify and locate various physical features and selected communities around the world, and describe some aspects of people's ways of life in those communities" (OME, 2018, p. 77). Within this resource, it connects to the citizenship education framework because it will allow students to analyze how communities across Canada have various ways of living based on the resources they have available along with the climate that accompanies that community, essentially, understanding that they have their own identity. I would use this video as part of a minds-on activity in a lesson where students will be engaging in a class discussion beforehand, brainstorming ideas to describe the climate and attributes in their community in Ontario. Afterwards, they will compare how the community is similar and different to that of Iqaluit.

Grade 3: Strand A
Strand A: Heritage and Identity: Communities in Canada 1780-1850
Rounded Rectangle
This resource is a video that describes how pioneers went by their day to day lives with the resources they had available at the beginning of the 19th century. This resource connects to the people and identity (Strand A) of the Grade 3 curriculum and more specifically to the overall expectation of A. 1: "compare ways of life among some specific groups in Canada around the beginning of the nineteenth century, and describe some of the changes between that era and the present day" (OME, 2018, p. 86). This resource connects to the citizenship education framework because it encourages student to analyze how various aspects of their community identity has been shaped throughout time. I would use this video as part of a lesson where students get to create an artifact that was used back then and they will be writing a journal entry from the perspective of a pioneer. This will allow them to analyze how society has grown and been shaped to accommodate more diverse needs.
