Thunder Bay Museum

Many museums offer educational Web sites where students can learn about the settlers and settlements of a community. This Web site for the Thunder Bay Museum provides an opportunity for students to learn more about the history of one of the largest cities in the Canadian Shield, Thunder Bay in northern Ontario. Students can find information in the archives and connect to other sites to learn more about the history of the city.

The Atlas of Canada
In addition to a wide variety of maps, the Atlas of Canada Web site provides a wealth of useful information about Canada. The political maps are particularly good for studying settlement patterns, population distribution, and urban centres. The site also provides facts, quizzes, a glossary, and other useful links, including lesson models and student activities.
