The Weather Office

Since weather is current and constantly changing, it is an excellent way to make geography relevant to students. The Weather Office site from Environment Canada provides a map of current weather systems for North America. Students can access information for specific regions, such as the Great Lakes Lowland. They can also get the five-day forecast and view radar and satellite images.


Weather Winners

This site from Environment Canada provides information about Canadian weather records. You can find out which cities are the "winners" in several categories, such as the wettest, the driest, the coldest, and the hottest. There are also categories such as "most typical Canadian cities" and "most comfortable cities." Students can search for weather records in the Great Lakes Lowland region by city or by weather topic.
