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.

I work with students that range from year 1 to year 12, approx 30 with various Special Needs and ESL. Because of the range in year levels and subjects covered it is impossible to find time to make my own resources for many of the lessons. Lesson Planet has become a reliable source to gain information and ideas.
