Vancouver Kids: Child Bride

We have been reading the following book in class, as a read aloud.

I really love this book as it is a great way to talk about local history with the students. All short stories have been written based on true facts and the author has done a great job of adding a short section at the end of each story to explain where she found her inspiration.

Yesterday, Mme Anne-Marie (our student teacher) read Child Bride to the students. Here is what we learned about it.

Finding out that girls could marry at such a young age came as a shock to the students. They had so many questions that we asked them to write their thoughts on post-it notes so as to not forget them. Here’s what they came up with. These would be great discussion starters at home as well.
