(notice the name on the bill)
Learning Goal: We are learning about the Canadian symbols and images used on Canadian currency and making some assessments of these choices.
Questions to ask: What are some of the symbols of Canada? How does a simple object become a symbol? How are these symbols connected to my identity as a Canadian? When we think about Canada, we think about…natural physical features, maps, buildings and monuments, food, leisure activities, people, attitudes, and animals…? How do you think images are selected to be put on coins, bills, or stamps?
Design your own $150 bill for the 150th anniversary
Perhaps, you will include a timeline in your design (dates), a historical Canadian person, famous Canadian invention or something completely off the chart…it’s your design (7cm x 15 – front and back)
Remember it’s for Canada – not just Toronto – be prepared to defend your symbolic choices)
Energy is the power we use for transportation, for heat and light in our homes and for the manufacture of all kinds of products. There are two sources of energy: renewable and nonrenewable energy.
Nonrenewable Sources of Energy
Most of the energy we use comes from fossil fuels, such as coal, natural gas and petroleum. Uranium is another nonrenewable source, but it is not a fossil fuel. Uranium is converted to a fuel and used in nuclear power plants. Once these natural resources are used up, they are gone forever.
The process of gathering these fuels can be harmful to the biomes from which they come. Fossil fuels are put through a process called combustion in order to produce energy. Combustion releases pollution, such as carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide, which may contribute to acid rain and global warming.
Renewable Sources of Energy
Renewable sources of energy can be used over and over again. Renewable resources include solar energy, wind, geothermal energy, biomass and hydropower. They generate much less pollution, both in gathering and production, than nonrenewable sources.
Solar energy comes from the sun. Some people use solar panels on their homes to convert sunlight into electricity.
Wind turbines, which look like giant windmills, generate electricity.
Geothermal energy comes from the Earth’s crust. Engineers extract steam or very hot water from the Earth’s crust and use the steam to generate electricity.
Biomass includes natural products such as wood, manure and corn. These materials are burned and used for heat.
Dams and rivers generate hydropower. When water flows through a dam it activates a turbine, which runs an electric generator.
Dave gave Charlotte half of his pogs. Charlotte gave Johnnie half of the pogs she received from Dave. Johnnie kept 8 of those pogs and gave the remaining 10 to Dana. How many pogs did Dave give Charlotte?
On an average day, Canadians spend $958904.00 buying video games. Of this total $767123.00 is spent on Nintendo games. In one week how much do Canadians spend on Nintendo Games. How much do they spend on other video games in a week?
