You have also researched other interesting facts about the Fathers, and how each of them contributed to the country we all live in and enjoy right now.
I know what you are thinking. You wish you could be Fakebook friends with them.
This assignment will get you as close to that as possible. You are to create a Fakebook profile for one of the Fathers of Confederation.
This profile SHOULD NOT BE a newly created online profile on FACEBOOK as this violates Facebook’s user agreement.
IT SHOULD VISUALLY LOOK SIMILAR TO A TYPICAL FACEBOOK PAGE(use your artistic talents)
Here are the sections you MUST have in your FaKebook Profile.
Name, Profile Pic - Status
Wall with RELEVANT (mostly) conversations with OTHER important figures in confederation (1 or 2 joke posts are ok, but MOST should be about Confederation). These can be about their political viewpoints, them discussing why the factors (railway, manifest destiny, Fenian Raids) that lead to confederation are making them want to do it now, etc. Additional research MAY BE NECESSARY.
Groups – What groups would he want to be a part of “If 1000 000 people join this group I will unite the British Colonies” – be creative.
REMEMBER THAT YOU NEED TO COPY THE URL (WEBSITE ADDRESS FOR THE FAKEBOOK PAGE) . HUNDREDS OF OTHER KIDS HAVE DONE THIS ACTIVITY, SO SEARCHING FOR IT USING THE SEARCH FUNCTION WILL TAKE YOU FOREVER TO FIND IT!
