Homeschooling Canadian History 1

P126 A CANADIAN INDIANSchool starts up again in a few weeks, and since we are committed to another year of homeschooling, it is always a bit of a busy time getting prepared. This year we are doing Grade 3.  We’ve done a little bit of learning about Canada the last few years, but this year we are going to try to dive in a little bit deeper. And since I am a bit of a recent fan of Charlotte Mason, we will be doing it in a Charlotte-Mason-inspired format.

Want to join me?

First Peoples:

These books are not all written by Canadians, but they contain relevant information.

Indian Boyhood, by Charles Eastman (Libravox Recording)

Indian Hero Tales, by Gilbert Wilson

Two Little Savages, by Ernest Thompson Seton

Children of the Longhouse by Joseph Bruchac

North American Wildlife:

Ways of Wild Folk, by William J. Long (Libravox Recording)


We will also be considering some Canadian poetry and art.

Poet: Archibald Lampman

Artist: Emily Carr 

None of this has been tried and tested yet… but we will blog infrequently about how it is going. If you decide to do it too, follow me so you don’t miss Term 2 and 3.
