Write a paragraph telling how your family came to Canada.
You may use this cloze paragraph as a guide. But feel free to change it to suit your family’s history. If you do not know your family’s history, write about someone else’s history using the 3rd person point of view.
__________ came to Canada __________ years ago. ______ left ____________ because ____________________ . _____________ chose Canada because _______________ . And now this is where I live, the place that I call home. I am happy to be here!
My family came to Canada almost 100 years ago. My German-speaking parents left Russia as young children because there was a civil war, and farms were being taken away from landowners, and people were being killed. My grandparents chose Canada because they already knew people who lived in Canada and they heard that there was more farmland available. And now this is where I live, the place that I call home. I am happy to be here! (Ms. Rosen)
