Carmen Sandiego is one of those under-rated heroes of Geography - a clever, well-travelled lady, with a purpose!
Share this wonderful woman with your students with this Canadian Geography Challenge. You can have this as an individual, paired, or group activity. It's especially useful at the beginning of a term as a general introduction into Canadian Geography.
3 pages of clues and fill-in-the-blank guess spot
1 page of blackline Canadian map
4 pages of answers
Using prepared locational clues, you have students use their knowledge, online technology (iPad, Chromebook, etc), to tackle the places that Carmen Sandiego has visited. Once all thirteen places have been discovered, students will place these locations on an included blackline master map, as a diagnostic to their geographical prowess.
This activity will take as long as you'd like it to be. Continued activities that follow-up with it is to have students take one of the thirteen places discovered, and create a brochure, display, presentation, post-card, travel video which goes into more detail.
Enjoy this task, and the nostalgia it may bring you!
