Canadian History Sub Plans

Use these Canadian history sub plans to help your students remain engaged and excited about their social studies classes when you are away.

Canadian history sub plans can be a challenge to find. You want to ensure that engaging and relevant lessons are left for your students when you are absent. 

Sometimes you can have the substitute teacher continue on with your regular lessons, but other times the material cannot be left for someone else to teach. In those instances use one of these  sub plans. These sub plans relate to significant and exciting times for Canada.
