Mr. McGuire's Grade 3 class has developed a Powerpoint entitled, "The New Brunswick 21 Questions Quest." Our goal in Grade 3 at KCS is to learn about our province in a way that we can teach it to others. We believe our Picture Province is worth sharing with other people because it is beautiful, fun, and historic. We have just established contact with a Grade 3 class in Madrid, Spain and hope to share and exchange our culture and way of life with them! Enjoy!

  5. 5. 1. When did New Brunswick become a province? Originally, New Brunswick was part of Nova Scotia. The American Revolution caused a large number of Loyalist settlers to push for the creation of a new province. On September 10th, 1784 New Brunswick officially became a province. More than 80 years later, in 1867, New Brunswick joined other provinces to join the Dominion of Canada.

  8. 8. 4. Where did we get the symbols on our flag?
  9. 9. Our Flag <ul><li>The symbols on the New Brunswick flag were officially created on February 24, 1965. </li></ul>The gold lion on the red background represents the coat of arms and shares ties with Germany and Britain. The galley, with oars in the water, represents New Brunswick's early seafaring industry.
  10. 10. 5. What do all the symbols on the Coat of Arms mean? <ul><li>COAT OF ARMS : In the center, the provincial shield of arms displays (in a fashion similar to that of the provincial flag) a golden lion at the top and an ancient oared galley riding waves below. Above the shield is an Atlantic salmon carrying a royal crown on its back, on a coronet with four maple leaves, which rests on a helmet. Supporting the shield are antlered white-tailed deer on both the right and the left, each with a collar of Maliseet wampum; from the collar of the deer on the left hangs a small shield displaying the Union Jack (the flag of Great Britain), while the other deer's shield has three fleur-de-lys on a blue background. Beneath the shield the provincial motto appears on a scroll, with a grassy mound, purple violets, and fiddleheads. </li></ul>

Time to get the nicer clothes out. SUMMER is sunshine where hot and long days present endless choices. Spend a some time on the beach having a cold treat while the wind plays with your hair and the waves tickle your toes. AUTUMN is bursting with colours and children jump in beds of fallen leaves. Farmers markets provide delicious foods in the most beautiful place on earth in the fall. WINTER is the season when holiday cheer is near and fun outdoor activities take place amongst snowy backdrops. Find a spot in front of a warm fire and sip on a cup of hot cocoa and sing carols to warm your soul. NB Summers Click the link to watch a video on NB summers!
