Confederation for Kids

We are currently learning about the Confederation of Canada in grade 8 history class.  The students have been divided into six colonies considering  joining Confederation (Canada East, Canada West, Nova Scotia, PEI, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland).  Each colony will be required to make a decison and present it to the other colonists on Tuesday, October 19.  They will be given two periods of class time for research and organization.  Each group is encouraged to utilize technology (smart ideas, office org presentation) to enhance their presentation.  The members of the colony should be in role (a Father of Confederation) during the presentation.  Below is a great site full of information that could be useful in the presentations.
