Quebec Winter Carnival
This site includes a complete history
of the Quebec Winter Carnival as well as a description of all its events.
The site is updated every year, and is available in English or French.
This official Quebec government
site for tourism lends itself to numerous research opportunities. There
is a complete description of Quebec's recreational activities, tourist
spots, and events. There are roadmaps and photographs, and sub-directories
for more than a dozen sporting activities, such as skiing, ice fishing,
and dog sledding. Quebec's parks, bicycle paths, walking trails, and natural
reserves are also covered. Students will find the information easy to
retrieve on this site.

There are 20 Quebec tourist regions;
teachers may wish to assign one region to each student and then create
a bulletin board in the classroom to display the finished products.
Ensure that students understand
the meaning of the word "promote" and why giving away a free weekend
package will benefit the resort owner. Emphasize to students that they
should concentrate on the features of the resort and the recreational
opportunities nearby. Remind them that not everyone wants to pursue
"extreme" sports, and that their package should include a variety of
indoor and outdoor activities! Students will have to "locate" their
imaginary resort, so part of their research should focus on which activities
are occurring in which parts of the province. Encourage students to
organize the information on their brochure or postcard into information
categories, and to illustrate it with photos from the site.
You may wish to use or adapt
the following criteria to evaluate student posters/brochures.
