Before we really get into our theme for today, here is a yoga video that will help your breathing and strengthen your lungs.
July 1 is Canada Day and therefore I thought we should have that as a theme for today. Here is a great brief history of Canada that I thought would be a great way to start.
Now let’s see how much we know about Canada. Here’s a Canada Day trivia quiz:
Do you have special foods that you prepare for Canada Day? Here is a video that might prompt you with some iconic Canadian food.
Do you have a favourite Canada Day tradition? One of mine involves my children participating in the North Shore Canada Day Parade. Here is a video from 2012 that I hope you enjoy.
This video that explains Canada Day to Americans:
And this is a fabulous song that will only make sense to Canadians :)
Music is an important part of our world and I thought I would share a couple of videos of iconic Canadian music stars and then a movie of one of Canada’s favourite books. First, Gordon Lightfoot and his Lifetime Achievement Award:
Next, an Intimate Evening with Anne Murray, with guest stars Bryan Adams, Jann Arden and Celine Dion:
To end our day, did you read the book Anne of Green Gables? Here is the 2016 movie of that story.
I hope that you had a good day.
Stay safe and I hope you check back in next week - Monday, July 4.
