Canada is a land made up of people from all over the world. As a result, many different traditions are celebrated throughout the country. Students learn that a tradition is something that has been done by people in a family or group for a long time. In this new, fun-filled Canadian-produced program, a naive robot stumbles upon some traditional decorations. Due to his inquisitive nature, we are taken on a journey through exciting traditions and celebrations found throughout Canada.
Many of Canada’s traditions like Halloween and Thanksgiving come from Europe where our early settlers came from. Others like National Aboriginal Day are from Canada’s First People - First Nations, Metis and Inuit. Other traditions such as Ramadan and Diwali have been brought to Canada more recently.
This program was specifically produced for the Canadian Grades 1 - 3 Social Studies curriculum!
