Week 6: Canadian Sports Ages 7-8

Canadian Sports
Week 6
Ages: 7-8
Can you think of some sports that were invented in Canada?
The first book we read was "Lucy Tries Luge" by Lisa Bowes. It's great to be able to read a book to the kids by a local Albertan! 

The second book we read was "Just One Goal!" by Robert Munsch. What a fun book! There's even an appearance made by a moose!  
The third book we read was "The Hockey Sweater" by Roch Carrier. This is a great book that shows Canadians' passion for hockey!  

Don't let the balloon touch the ground! This was a fun activity, however the wind kept blowing the balloon into the trees so after we were tired of that we ended up playing telephone! 

Design your own sports player!
White paper, crayons, Popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners and whatever other materials you can find! 
1. Draw a person
2.Color your person
3. Have your person doing whatever activity you would like
4. Cut out your athlete
5. Make some equipment to go along with your athlete, whether that be skis or a hockey stick,
                                                                  the sky is the limit!
(I made a snowboarder!)
