Last summer I had the joy of writing several kits for the HCOS Learning Commons. Writing this guide for Afghanistan was very rewarding. This guide is written to correspond with the British Columbia Grade 6 Learning Outcomes but could be used by anyone wanting to do an Afghanistan study.
This kit on Afghanistan is based on the book The Breadwinner by Deborah Ellis. There is much to be learned about the culture, laws, human rights and the daily life in Afghanistan. We enjoyed this study so much when Elizabeth was in Grade 6. The discussions were rich and the comparisons to Canada were very stark. There is much to be learned here!!
