Do you every change/suppliment the social studies aspect of FIAR to contain more Canadian content? I'm doing some planning for next year, and would like to try to include more Canadian content. I thought maybe we could brainstorm a few ideas. Obviously some books would be more conducive to this than others.
My thoughts so far: (With the disclaimer that I haven't actually read all the books - just going on summaries and what I've picked up from others.)
Very Last First Time is the obvious one since it is set in Canada. Does anyone know which Territory it is set in?
The Bee Tree - Yukon connection. Can include Yukon info and Territorial flag, bird, flower, map, etc.
Arabella - I thought that this would be a great book to do a bit of an introduction or study (depending on age) of the Bluenose. (Famous ship from Nova Scotia - on our dime!) Also perhaps looking at the Maritime provinces.
Any other thoughts?
