PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Give your students a chance to search the globe (literally) by searching for Canadian geographic locations in this visual map reading research activity disguised as a challenge.

This activity was designed for our students to gain confidence using a variety of resources to locate geographical features and places. Students were given atlases, globes, 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 and their map reading skills to interpret and record places in Canada. 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 Great White North.

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.
