Canada: Coast to Coast
Have students print out a map of Canada and identify where the sites in the video are located.
Students create a powerpoint of their top five notable Canadian sites that they would like to visit and explain why.
Comparison with U.S.
Canada is very similar to the United States in many ways. Discuss or write about ways that the two countries are different.
A cloze piece has full sentences used in the virtual field trip with blanks where students can write in the information that is missing. This task requires close listening to the trip in order to complete it.
Create a diorama of the higlights of Canada. Students could also just focus on one region.
Write a story with Canada as the setting. The main character could be from another country (compare and contrast characters).
Have students create an itinerary for a visit to Canada. Can it be done in one trip? Two? Three? What would your budget need to be? How long would it take? How would you get around? What would you like to see most?
Students create a quiz based on the information presented for their peers. This can be used as a review for a test, or jigsaw class activity where students are responsible for teaching other students assigned topics.
Have students write a report about Canada including: landmarks, population, how it is similar to the United States, history (how it came to be), type of government, economy, famous sites, architecture, interesting facts, religions, food, etc.
