									                Coat of Arms Project
You have been chosen to represent one cultural group that has
contributed to the diverse heritage of Canada. As the group’s
representative, you will conduct an investigation to uncover the
history and culture of your group in a Canadian context. You
will then create a coat of arms that shares what you have
learned with others in the class.

At the end of your investigation, you should be able to provide information on each of the
following questions:

      What events led to this group's presence in Canada?
      What was their role in developing Canada?
      Where in Canada did they live or work?
      What important historical events happened to this group of people?
      What challenges did they experience; e.g., pressures to conform, discrimination, barriers
       to communication?
      How did Canada change as a result of their contributions?
      What contributions did they make to Canada; choose to represent two from the following
       list:

               cultural: traditions, folklore, language, rules of behaviour, styles of dress, food and
                          religious celebrations such as Christmas;
               social: community building, informal gatherings;
               economic: establishment of industries, innovations;
               political: participating in government, lawmaking, law enforcement;
               humanitarian: commitments to improving the lives of others.

To demonstrate your understanding of your group’s contribution to Canada, you will create a
symbolic representation for each of the areas of study; these, then, will help you create a coat of
arms for your group.

To help you organize the information you gather during the inquiry process, please use the
graphic organizer that follows.

It’s up to you to show your classmates the important contributions that your group made to
Canada, so be sure to create an accurate and meaningful display!
