The premise of this resource is to provide students with a way to plan a "virtual" class trip to Ottawa with the help of the Internet.
This resource includes:
---two cover pages (one could be used for a bulletin board display the other for a student notebook);
---a one-page informational passage about Ottawa with a page of questions (no answer key is provided as the questions are subjective) and a brief vocabulary activity;
---an information sheet on the basic requirements of a school trip (or what they think they might be) for students to complete;
---an organizer to complete about what they know and don't know about Ottawa; some "Fast Facts" are provided as well;
--- six "destination" pages for which the students will consult websites to complete. The websites are for: the Museum of Science and Technology, Parliament, Museum of History (formerly Civilization), Museum of Nature, Museum of War, and the National Art Gallery.
--a page provided for students to create a map: this has been left for the teacher’s direction - students can draw or glue a map of Ottawa, showing all, some, or only one of the "destinations."
---the resource ends with 2 pages of "Tally Sheets" for a survey: the class can be polled about the Ottawa destinations they want to see the most, or the least and there are other questions as well. The results of the tally can be incorporated into a math lesson, i.e. percentage, fractions, etc. Students could create graphs showing proportions of the class that preferred one destination over another.
