The Canadian Shield: Settlers and Settlement
These Web sites
will provide you with background information.
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.
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.
