This is a series of maps focussing on the Prairie Provinces of Canada: Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. It is one of the five main regions of Canada (BC, Prairie Provinces, Ontario & Quebec, Atlantic Provinces and The North). Included are four versions: one with the main cities and bodies of water labeled, one with the major cities and bodies of water without labels, one with a reduced amount of water bodies and no cities, and lastly, one completely blank showing only provincial boundaries.
Maps are a way of representing data. These maps will provide a canvas for displaying data, depending on whether or not cities, rivers, or lakes are relevant to the data presented. I have also created two mapping assignment sheets, one easier than the other.
Some ideas for using these maps:
-Show the path of the explorers/fur trade
-Show location of the immigrants who settled the prairies
-Show historical locations (Cypress Hill Rebellion, etc.)
-Show physical geography, land use, population density, movement patterns, etc.
I look forward to hearing how you have used the maps!
