?_Geography Postcards
 

This activity consolidates the information provided on pages 44-47 of InfoCanada Northwest Territories .

Bring to class a number of samples of postcards to share with student. Discuss the purpose of a postcard and common design elements of this form of communication. Evaluate the sample postcards on how well they communicate information about their subject, how effective is the visual, how helpful is the descriptive information, etc. Prior to students creating their postcards, discuss with them various symbols used by Canada and its provinces and territories, e.g., the maple leaf, the beaver, the gyrfalcon, etc. Make a display of the students' completed postcards with accompanying descriptions. Have students evaluate their work according to the criteria you developed when assessing the sample post cards.
