Transcript of Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan is 1 of 3 prairie provinces. It is also the 5th largest province. Here are some of the provinces next to Saskatchewan, Manitoba is east of Saskatchewan, Alberta is west, and The Northwest Territories is north. It is in the southwest part of Canada.
The people to first live in Saskatchewan include Cree, Assiniboine, Chipewyan, Blackfoot, and Gros Ventre. Saskatchewan's name comes from the Cree word "Kisskatchewan" it means "Swiftly flowing river." People started moving from Europe to Saskatchewan in the 1870's. Saskatchewan became a province in 1905. When people didn't have building materials for houses they used sod which is dirt and grass and they leave holes for windows and doors. In the summer it's cool and warm in the winter, and sometimes when it rains it leaks through the sod and the floor becomes mud.
Saskatchewan's capital city is Regina.The provincial flower is prairie lilies.The provincial tree is the white birch.The provincial bird is the sharp tailed grouse. Saskatchewan's motto is "From many peoples strength." Regina, Saskatchewan's capital city used to be called Pile of Bones because a huge pile of buffalo skeletons once covered the city.
