In the past few weeks, we’ve been excited to receive visits from students in Mrs. Smith’s class in British Columbia. We want to learn more about where they live, but first we asked ourselves what we already know about their home. Some of our ideas may not be as accurate as others, but in the coming days, we’ll investigate which of our statements are true and which not.
Here’s what we think we know:
British Columbia is a province in Western Canada
The people there are British!
They have British accents.
It’s very cold there much of the year.
The scenery is very green…lots of evergreen trees grow there.
British Columbia is in the Taiga Biome (someone’s paying attention in science class!)
Hockey is the big sport (others said no, it’s rugby).
Skiing is also huge.
British Columbia has recently hosted the World Cup.
Many American television shows are filmed there.
It’s the only other country with “American” football.
The people there speak French (others said nope, British Columbia is the only Canadian province where French is NOT the language).
The people there like maple syrup!
The flag is red and white striped with a maple leaf.
The time zone is Pacific, same as California.
Mrs. Smith’s class, how did we do? We’ll post again after we learn more!
