The nine activities included in this product are designed to be used with any province or territory (except for #8, the “find words within words” puzzle). A choice board is included at the end of the product if you wish to use the nine activities that way, having your students choose a line of activities to complete.
1) Compare and Contrast Two Provinces or Territories: students are given a number of topics to choose from, or they could be assigned a specific topic;
2) Illustrate with Storyboards: students choose an event from a province or territory’s history and illustrate it in six storyboards and then, as a conclusion, write an outline of the event;
3) Weather - One Province or Territory’s Climate: using online sources, students answer eight questions about the climate of a specific province or territory (the last question asks them to compare its climate to their own province or territory’s);
4) One Province or Territory - Six Reasons to Visit!: Students choose a province or territory and list six reasons they would like to visit it. In this activity students have to research the province or territory to find six things they would really like to see and why they would like to see them. The students complete the activity by listing four reasons someone might want to visit their own province or territory;
5) Biography Study Activity: students choose a historical figure from a specific province or territory and complete a short biographical profile. The activity is illustrated with an image of Louis Riel, but this is just an illustration - he is not the assigned subject;
6) Create a Pinning Board: students glue pictures (or draw their own) of items that represent a particular province or territory - this may be narrowed down to one topic as well;
7) Create a Webquest Activity: students make a short webquest activity using a province or territory government website. They design it for another student or students to complete. Please note that the student that makes the webquest should record the correct answers on a separate piece of paper after recording the questions on the worksheet provided here;
8) Finding Words within Words: a fun puzzle, great for early finishers: students find as many words as they can within the phrase “East to West and North”. A couple of challenges are included. An answer key is provided with examples;
9) True or False Activity - The Province or territories: Students choose the four statements (out of ten) which are false and explain why they are false. An answer key is provided.
All pages print out well in greyscale.
There are many useful websites for the students to use, and of course, books. To complete the province/territory government activity, students should be directed to a province or territory’s official government website.
