Week 7: Canadian Myths and Legends Ages 9-12

Week 7
Canadian Myths and Legends
Ages 9-12
We started the class by discussing different myths and legends.
We read the book "A Promise is A Promise" by Robert Munsch and Michael Kusugak to get some different ideas for some different folklore creatures. 

Craft: 
This week for our craft we created our own creatures. I gave each of the kids a template to describe their creature (they had to be related to Canada in some way). The different creatures the kids came up with were all very creative! Some of their legends were quite funny.
There were various questions such as: Where does it live? How do you know it is near? Is it friendly or scary?



After we were done creating our creatures we went outside to play a game of
 "Ogopogo, Ogopogo, Sasquatch", which is exactly like "Duck, Duck, Goose", however, you say Ogopogo and Sasquatch instead. 



Week 7: Canadian Myths and Legends Ages 7-8

Week 7
Canadian Myths and Legends
Ages 7-8

Question: 
Do you know of a Canadian myth or legend? 
Most kids thought of Bigfoot. They were very intrigued with the story of Ogopogo

Books: 
The first book we read was "Sophie and the Sea Monster" by Don Gillmor and Michael Martchenko. This is a fun book with some cool looking monsters! It's quite humorous too, the kids got a good laugh out of this one. 

The second book we read was "The Great Antonio" by Elise Gravel. The children couldn't believe that Antonio was actually a real guy! They were very interested in this story!

The third book we read was "A Promise is a Promise" by Robert Munsch. This is a great book, it's a very intriguing story that kept the children very interested.

Craft:
Ogopogo Clothes Pin 
Materials: 
Clothes pins, blue construction paper, googly eyes, pipecleaner, glue, and tape.
Instructions: 
1. Cut out some waves out of construction paper 
2. Make a Sea monster with your pipe cleaner 
3. Glue a googly eye onto the pipe cleaner
4. Glue your monster onto the clothespin
5. Glue the waves in front of your monster to make it look like he's swimming!
Use your monster as a book mark or however you'd please!




Activity: 
Ogopogo, Ogopogo, Sasquatch 
How to play:
Played like "duck, duck, goose", but instead you say Sasquatch for the person you want to run against!
The kids had a lot of fun playing this game, however, by the end Ogopogo started to become a tongue twister!  

Handshake Monster
We ended the program with a game of handshake monster AKA handshake murder.

Someone is named the "Murderer." When someone is "Murderer," they go around and give a squeeze rather then a handshake. So while everyone else is giving handshakes, this person squeezes people's hands. Once someone's hand is squeezed, they "die." Eventually, someone can try to guess who the killer is. If they are right, they win. If they are wrong, then they die and the game goes on. 

Another variation is when whenever someone gets their hand squeezed, they are now the murderer, and the previous one "dies." In this version, you can make it so that after a murderer squeezes 2 people's hands they die or they have to give a normal handshake after they squeeze someone's hand before dying.

You can also play this game where everyone is sitting in a circle and the murderer winks at people. This version is a little harder because you need to make sure that the person sees you before you wink at them, and in large circles this can be a little hard.

As the game continues, you can add more and more murderers. But always have less murderers then non-murderers. This is a good game to just mess around with but keep the same idea going.



Week 7: Canadian Myths and Legends Ages 2-6

Week 7

Have you ever heard of Bigfoot? How about the Ogopogo? 
Some of the children have heard of Bigfoot but most of them had not heard about the Ogopogo
Books: 
The first book we read was "Monster Party" by Annie Bach. This is a silly book, with lots of fun pictures that kept the kids interested!

Week 1 Oh Canada! Ages 9-12

Week 1
      Ages 9-12  
Oh Canada! 

Question: 
     What do you like most about Canada? Why is Canada so great?

After asking my opening question, I began the program by reading the kids some Canadian jokes, this was a great icebreaker as it allowed the kids to loosen up and have a good laugh.

Some Canadian jokes:
What did the mallard duck say to Canadian goose? You quack me up!
What does a pig use to clean the ice rink? A hamboni!
Knock knock. Who's there? Icy. Icy who? Icy you weren't expecting me. 





Activities:
         

    The first game we played was Canadian charades. I gave each child a slip of paper and one at a time they acted out whatever word was on their piece of paper. I used different Canadian symbols like beaver, moose, goose, lumberjack, hockey etc...
       

        The second game we played was called fire and ice tag. To play this game you get two balls of different colors (I chose blue to represent ice, and pink to represent fire). The person that is holding the “ice” ball is it, the person who is holding the “fire” ball unfreezes people. I have the children perform different forms of locomotion while playing the game to add variety. I also have the children who are holding the ball to pass it to a friend every 2 minutes or so, so that no one feels left out. When a person is frozen I have them do different balancing poses, or funny faces to make the game that much more fun! There are so many variations you can do to this game it is so simple and easy, and the kids love this game.


Craft:

         Collage of what Canada is to you
Materials: Manilla tag paper, various magazines and books, scissors, glue, and Canadian pictures.
  The children seemed to enjoy this activity; some of the images they created were cool to see. I think they loved the fact that they could create whatever they would like of what Canada is to them.
Snack: Apple, carrots, and cookies
