Oh (No) Canada! Only 48%?

In history class, the students in Mentor 8A (Ms. Weinkauf) and 8B (Mrs. Kantimer) wrote poems about Canada. The students were shocked to learn that only 48% of Canadians felt that they understood Confederation, and only 10% believed that they had a thorough comprehension of Confederation.

Vowing not to fall into these statistics, the students watched videos and discussed the sheer size of our country, the diversity, and the incredible accomplishment that the whole country was united through negotiation and diplomacy, not war. Here are some videos of a couple of the poems presented.
