U.S. and Canada: How are We the Same? How are We Different?

Get high school geographers to compare and contrast Canada and the United States. They begin by drawing a freehand map of North America, then complete readings to gain insight into Canada. The text is not provided; however, another text could substitute. Learners write a compare-and-contrast essay on the two countries, and orally defend their comparison. A sample comparison is available.
