When Canada celebrates its anniversary on July 1, the sun shines in the north—both night and day. What’s different between northern and southern fireworks?
In the very northern part of Canada the sun shines almost 24 hours a day on Canada Day, July 1. Ask students if they know why? Have students find out about the origins of this important national holiday.
Canada’s diverse people often celebrate their country’s anniversary with picnics, relay races, concerts, and festivals. But what about fireworks? They could not be seen in the north in the sunlight! Special fireworks are shown in the Canadian North. These fireworks make colorful smoke, cloud effects…and lots of noise when they explode!
Here’s a cool way to show fireworks in both the north and south of Canada. Attach pieces of black and white construction paper together with Crayola® School Glue.
On the white half, students sketch fireworks in northern Canada with Crayola Twistables. Draw big, colorful clouds of smoke. Show the booms by spreading Crayola Glitter Glue on the fireworks for sparkle. Label these Northern Fireworks.
For the southern part of the country, draw colorful fireworks with Crayola Gel Markers on black paper. Highlight the fireworks with glitter glue. Label the picture Southern Fireworks. Air-dry flat.
On another sheet of paper, write and color in words such as Canada Day. Cut the words out with Crayola Scissors. Glue them to your fireworks display. Air-dry flat.
