The song he made would be played during Congress National des Canadiens-Francais (National Congress of French Canadians) and then that poem became famous and it became known as the song to represent Canada… Oh Canada was written in 1880. It officially became Canada’s national anthem in 1980. 

How Does Electricity Work?
by Cody, Dora, Denyce


In Electricity there is the movement of electrons. Electrons are tiny particles that orbit the nucleus of an atom. An atom is the basic unit of a chemical element. An example of electricity would be that electricity is like water in a hose. The electrons are the water and the wire is the hose. The nucleus also stays in the same spot and the electrons jump from nucleus to nucleus when the power surge is turned on.
