You know when you read the title above, many of you will think of the tune we heard at the Winter Olympics last year. Well, that's exactly why I chose it!

I wrote this song to assist several teachers teaching about Canada. Warning: it is a wee bit long! However, I hope you will find the quality (and quantity) good!

I purposely came up with a chorus so that the students would have a designated part to sing (whether verbal or via a switch like a Big Mac, or other voice output device). For nonverbal students, I prepare the switch ahead of time and record the chorus on it.

Of course, I created a power point to display visuals of everything the song talks about. I also imported the same pictures I found on google images for my power point into Boardmaker, and made picture cards and laminated them for the teachers to use as well. I really like to use the GoTalk 4 size for laminated picture cards because I work in several classrooms where the students have visual deficits.

Anyhow, here it is and if you'd like a copy of the lyrics, just shoot me an email:
