Grade 5

Welcome to Elections Ontario’s new educational resources for Grade 5 Social Studies. The lessons are aligned with the revised curriculum released in 2018, are asynchronous, and can be used in whichever order that works best for the educator’s respective students. 

Each lesson is focused on an inquiry question, begins with a big idea, prepares students with an engaging “Minds On” section, and encourages knowledge construction through student-focused activities. Lessons conclude with relevant consolidation tasks and assessment activities.  

We know that young people need to discuss civic issues and develop civic literacy. The activities in this resource prepare students to become informed voters and active citizens, providing them with a greater understanding of the value of democratic participation. 

All lessons within this curriculum can be found below in both an online and PDF format. To request hard copies, please complete a resource order form. We also provide lessons for the Grade 10 Civics and Citizenship course.
