sites will provide you with background information.
The Parks Canada Web site provides
links to all of Canada's national parks, by province and territory. In
Newfoundland and Labrador, students can find out more about Gros Morne
National Park, a beautiful nature preserve and a UNESCO World Heritage
Site. They can also look for other national parks in the Appalachian region
through the Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island
links. The site also provides a Teacher Guide section with ongoing activities,
programs, and competitions.
Students will find this Web site helpful for activities
that involve planning a trip to the region or suggesting reasons why they
would want to visit the region. It provides good geographic coverage of
New Brunswick as well as links to other sites. Encourage students to look
for similar Web sites for the other provinces in the Appalachian region.
