the Totems Tell
This .pdf document, available from
Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, explains what totem poles are. The
document is written for kids, and includes illustrations. Once they understand
what totem poles are and what they're for, kids are encouraged to design
their own to represent their own family and history.
The statistical profiles of Canadian communities provide 2001 Census data
for close to 6,000 communities, 288 counties (or their equivalents), 27
large, and 113 smaller metropolitan areas. Data is provided for a wide range
of topics, including population, education, income and work, and families
and dwellings. This activity provides an introduction for students to the
Statistics Canada Web site.
