Hey guys, I can't believe I haven't mentioned this here.
My sister was doing a bit of Canadian history in school (She finishes grade 5 tomorrow) and I just have to share this with you.
In her social studies class she gets handouts from a thing called History Tellers with hand actions for memorization accompanied with cute little personification-y cartoons. :3
History Tellers (after looking up their website) is actually based in Alberta! That's awesome! :'D -adds to her tiny list of reasons why Alberta is awesome-
Anyway, it's super cute. I'm afraid you have to buy the package to see all of the pictures, but you can watch a demonstration of the hand actions here: http://historytellers.com/aboutHT.html
You can see the personification of England scattering the Acadians to the right below.
Scroll down to the bottom. PROVINCE BABIES. :DDD why is Sask eating a maple leaf aww
P.S. Speaking of my sister, she did a project on the Yukon Gold Rush and was pissed that she lost the 'Most Informative Award" to the jerkiest girl in her class who did her project on a horse.
After living in rural Alberta for a few years, I've noticed that all girls must do projects on horses or risk social ostracism.
