Take A Look Inside

It's time to learn about Canada. The activities included in The Grab Bag of Canada enable ESL teachers and their students to explore Canada from historical to contemporary perspectives. Students look at Canada through art, nature, people, structures and so on.

Not only do the activities fully cover the topic at hand, they actively involve students. There are reading exercises, grammatical exercises, interviews, discussions etc. The activities offer introductions and extensions to provide further practice and allow teachers to customize their lessons.

Teachers are encouraged to welcome ESL students to Canada by inviting The Grab Bag of Canada into their classrooms.
