This is a fun assignment to introduce students to the landscape and colonies of British North America.
There is a brief introduction to what Confederation means, and maps of British North America and Canada today. After the information is provided, the project is introduced.
Students are asked to create an edible map of British North America to help celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. Students work in groups, roles are assigned, and the assignment is described in the "directions." This is a fun way to get students mapping as well.
