Ontario Elementary Grade 5 Social Studies Curriculum

The expectations for Grade 5 social studies are organized into the following two strands:

• A. Heritage and Identity: First Nations and Europeans in New France and Early Canada

In this strand, students are provided with opportunities to explore various topics that will enable them to develop an understanding of the connections between the past and present; of interactions within and between diverse communities, including students’ own communities; and of the rights and responsibilities associated with citizenship. Students will develop an understanding of personal, cultural, and national identities, both past and present, and of contributions to Canadian heritage.

• B. People and Environments: The Role of Government and Responsible Citizenship

This strand focuses on natural and built environments and the connections between the two. Students explore geographic, social, political, economic, and environmental issues in the context of local, regional, national, and global communities, and they develop an understanding of the social and environmental responsibilities of citizens and of various levels of government.
