Product Description

Give your students a chance to search the province (literally) by searching for Alberta landmarks, cities, symbols and anything also made in Alberta. This is a research activity disguised as a challenge.

This activity was designed for our students to gain confidence using a variety of sources to locate information. Students were given atlases, globes, textbooks, books, pamphlets, maps and, when they were finally stumped, devices to go online and research the last blank spaces. They had to learn to use indexes, lists, table of contents, text features, glossaries, and their map reading skills to locate, interpret and record information about Alberta. It has been classroom tested with students in grade four and five and many students loved the challenge which took students everywhere from two hours (the ones that gave up) to all their spare time for an entire school year (the ones that mastered it).

It can be used as a whole class activity or an extension project for those students who need an extra challenge.

This activity was designed for Canadian students, but it can be used in any country to learn more about the province of Alberta.

It comes in two different sized formats so you can print in the format that best meets the needs of your students and comes with a list of possible suggested answers. Please see the preview for the level of difficulty.
