Young language arts pupils explore world geography through the reading of an informational text. As a class learners conduct research on the history, geography, culture, and politics of Canada while they read. They will need to define vocabulary terms from the book and answer study questions about the country as part of this lesson.
Ninth graders investigate the country of Canada by examining their media in this geography lesson. They use the Internet to research Canadian newspapers and analyze a topic covered by both US and Canadian media sources. After comparing the different perspectives the US and Canada have on a single subject, they discuss their research with the class.
All about Canada! Learners explore the geography and providences of Canada by watching videos, studying maps and conducting internet research. By the end of this lesson, your class should be able to locate major areas and compare and contrast provinces. The lesson culminates with students creating a map of Canada and writing a descriptive paragraph about a Canadian province of their choice.
Students use a map of Canada to locate and label the provinces, cities and major landforms. Individually, they read a selection given to them by their teacher and answer the comprehension questions. They also complete a chart to summarize information about the natural resources and industries found in Canada.
Help your secondary reader/writers assess texts by studying press releases from Statistics Canada and drafting articles based on them. They then compare the press release, their own articles, and actual news stories they find online. I'd switch the order the first time around with this project and begin with a comparison between a press release and a professional news story. Then they'll write articles having seen quality examples. Discuss the elements of an effective news story. It's a sound basis for strong nonfiction writing. Find the worksheet here.
Fifth graders become familiar with the people, culture, government and geography of Canada. In this Canadian people and places lesson, 5th graders research and create a map of Canada reflecting their gathered information. Students highlight important information on their province for the class.
Here is an outstanding series of lessons on Canada - it's geography and its history. In it, third graders locate Canada's regions, provinces, major cities, and prominent landforms. They work together in groups to gather information about Canada, and create a travel brochure about a certain area of Canada. An ambitious series of lessons for third graders, but they are written appropriately, and should be a success.
