History (Grade 8) - Confederation
Grade 8 students examine the major factors and significant events that led to the creation of the Dominion of Canada in 1867 and evaluate the natural and human challenges facing the advocates of union. They investigate regional interests and other factors that led to the growth of Canada, as other provinces and territories joined Confederation. They extend their understanding of national issues by comparing negotiations among regional interests at the time of Confederation with similar debates in Canada today.
