DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Together We are Canada!

© by Leanne Guenther

This is a cute poem about Canada that you can read to the kids or that the children can present in the form of a skit.  I wrote it awhile ago.

(For example:  It's nice for a Grade 4/5/6 class to do as a skit for a grade 1/2/3 class during an assembly).
