The next long weekend is nearly upon us, and that means it's time to take a look at how the topic can be approached in class. If you're looking for some of theose end-of-the-day/fill-in activities to use this week, fear no more. I've found a short list for both the Canadian and American version of the holiday. For those of us here in Canada, check out the following resources (albeit scarce resources) regarding Victoria Day:
SMART Exchange -- a few SMART Notebook activities that are applicable.
Victoria Day website -- not super interactive, but a quick overview of what the holiday is all about.
And for our southern neighbours, here's a list of some activities for Memorial Day the week after:
SMART Exchange -- a list of applicable Notebook and Response activities.
Interactive Timeline that has been embedded in the Orange County Register
History Channel -- you can always rely on these guys for bringing you a variety of excellent content: videos, info, etc.
Happy Victoria Day/Memorial Day/Whatever other day other continents observe the next couple of weeks! In short: happy May long weekend!
