Social Studies The Physical Regions of Canada


We are currently studying
The Physical Regions of Canada.

Cordillera: 

We have headed out to the Rocky and Coastal Mountains to investigate the Cordillera. We looked at the Forestry of the Region, The Climate, The Resources; such as, the Red Sockeye Salmon. 
We watched a film on the spawning of the Red Sockeye Salmon and headed to Hell's Gate in British Columbia. We took a virtual ride up the Fraser River on a Jet Boat too. 

Interior Plains: 

We flew over the Rockies in a virtual flight that lead us to the Canadian Prairies. We investigated the Climate, the Agriculture and many special interest activities. In our virtual flight we saw the numerous Grain Silos and discussed the railroad system needed to transport our grain to other nations of the world.

The Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Lowlands:

We headed off the Lake Superior and investigated the canal system between the great lakes.
We discussed how products and goods are moved to export through the Great Lakes all the way to the St. Lawrence River and the rest of the world. We learned about the amazing wealth of goods and services within the Toronto Montreal corridor.
