Geography of Canada

In the first section of Social Studies we are learning about the geography of Canada.  Students are learning to name and label all of the ten provinces and three territories along with their capital cities.  Students will be completing a partner project on one of the provinces.

 

 

If your child is doing research at home I have attached links to acceptable provincial websites.  They are under Social Studies -Geography of Canada

Canadian Regions

Grade 4 is currently learning about the different regions in Canada.  We have studied the prairies, the Atlantic and the Arctic regions.  They are showing their understanding through writing a piece similar to David Bouchard's "If You're Not From the Prairies."

 

Ex. If you're not from the Arctic

      You don't know dark

      You can't know dark

 

Our winter days are full of darkness,

24 hours of no sun at all

Our days and nights run together

 

       If you're not from the Arctic

       You don't know dark

       You can't know dark

 

Student Samples:

Prairie ( Interior Plains)

Arctic

Atlantic

Western Cordillera

Canadian Shield

St. Lawrence Great Lakes
