Web Links

Environment Canada      

The Environment Canada Web site provides daily weather data, weather forecasts, and Canadian Climate Normals (1971-2000) data that is easily accessible to students. Students can check the daily weather in a number of locations throughout the province, or gather climate data from stations scattered throughout the province. Information is easily accessible to students. Younger students will need teacher direction and support to understand data presented.

The Atlas of Canada  

The Atlas of Canada Web site provides an interesting and comprehensive collection of maps and related geographic information about Canada. Information and maps may be difficult to find and require several clicks through drop down menus. Younger students will require teacher direction to locate most relevant Web pages.

Answer Key

?_Geography Ecozones of British Columbia Poster
 

  

This activity extends the information presented on pages 4-7 of InfoCanada British Columbia. Instead of preparing a poster of the five ecozones, the students could prepare a flipbook of the five ecozones, or, if desired, a poster of just one ecozone.

You may wish to use or adapt the following criteria to evaluate student posters:

  • The student's map includes appropriate labels.
  • The poster includes all required elements.
  • The poster is attractive and eye-catching.
