Jeunes Citoyens / Young Citizens

Rhianna Ottawa, Ontario

Fair address: Ottawa Regional Fair

Project: Les emblèmes sur les pièces de monnaie canadiennes

My inquiry is: How were the symbols on canadian coins affected by the changes of the world? In my project, I answer that question and state why the symbols are on the coins.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I never knew about the Bluenose before, and I found its story really interesting. I also loved learning about the fur trade with the beavers, and I really enjoyed learning about the loon because it is my favourite bird.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Things that symbolize us as Canadians need to be protected and we need to not take them for granted. Some of these symbols brought us to where we are today, and we need to recognize them for that.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I did not study people's lives in my project, however I think the people who were involved with the fur trade would not have had a very easy life. They also probably had no education. We have come a long way, and I am grateful.
