Quebec History Mystery 23: Thirteen Colonies and New France Around 1745: Similarities and Differences

 Quebec History Mystery 23: Thirteen Colonies and New France Around 1745: Similarities and Differences

It's another fun History Mystery for your kiddos to solve! Want to see the other 22 free units? Click here!

Welcome to another History Mystery - the FINAL unit for grades 3 and 4! If you've managed to get through all 23 with your kids, then congrats! That deserves a celebration! They'll have also earned all 23 badges (if you're covering both years)

In this unit, they'll be comparing New France, which they've learned a lot about, to the Thirteen Colonies around 1745.

As always the unit begins with a handy progression of learning checklist so that you know you're covering everything. If you want to keep a full checklist on hand, I have one of those available for free too - you can find them in this folder.

It also includes an easy-to-use QR code that can be scanned with a phone or tablet, or I've included a link if you'd prefer. Here students will need to navigate the page comparing the two societies and do some research to answer the comprehension questions - but don't worry because I've kept that simple to use too!

The comprehension questions are all categorized in the same way that the research page on Learn Quebec is. This way, students can easily locate the pages they need to read in order to answer the questions. 

These questions are perfect for showing what your child has learned in their homeschool or class portfolios - but they're also excellent for keeping things simple. If you'd like to dig deeper into a period in history then you can. If you'd like to just use the unit and answer the questions, then that's all you need to do to follow the progressions.

At the back of this unit, and most others, there are also extra maps and resources you can use during your lesson to get a better look at the societies you're learning about. of course, the badges are also here for your child to collect as they learn about history.

**All I ask is that when sharing this unit online you share the link to this blog, NOT the google drive link. This helps keep traffic down and the link usable for everyone. If you're sharing a paper version with a friend or class that is fine too, so long as my website name remains in the corners of each page.

Thank you and enjoy learning!

Quebec History Mystery 22: Changes in new France 1645-1745

 Quebec History Mystery 22
Changes in new France 1645-1745

It's time for another Quebec History Mystery!
Want to see the other units available? Click here!

In this unit, students will discover the changes that took place in the territory, people, government and economy of New France between 1645 and 1745.

As always, these units come with a quick and easy to use QR code for research (or a link in the back).
My kids love to grab their tablet or my phone and use the code to look up information. As with most of these units, the link takes you to a page from Learn QC. Here they'll find all of the information they need to complete the entire unit and cover all the progressions.

These units also come with comprehension questions to show what your child has learned. These questions show that you have covered all of the progressions, as is required by law in Quebec. I am always sure to make the questions simple and to the point to make learning a little easier for kids this age.

In some units, there are small projects, but you may choose to add your own projects, books, or videos to make learning about these time periods more fun. We actually study ancient history alongside these units so we use these as more of a fill-in for what they would be learning in school.

And, of course, to make the unit FUN there is a badge for kids to earn for each unit. This is just a way to help keep them motivated and wanting to do the next units too!

I am also sure to include maps and graphs that can be helpful to use throughout the units as you go. Seeing as how this is the second to last unit for grades 3-4, there are no new maps in this one, but the same ones as the previous unit.

You can download this free unit by clicking on the link below!
If you would like to share this unit, please feel free to share the link to THIS blog, NOT the google drive link. This helps keep the link working well for everyone. If you would like to share a paper copy for FREE you may, so long as my website remains in the corner of the page.

Enjoy Learning!
