From now until Christmas we’ll be spotlighting provinces and territories from west to east as a perfect companion to your geography studies. Come along on our virtual travel tour to see this amazing country!
See the orcas, snorkel with salmon, and whiz down the ski slopes with Rick Mercer at our BC resources page. If you want a middle to upper grade curriculum, Geography Province to Province fits the bill.
On the British Columbia Highlights page download maps, facts, and view curated videos.
Pretend passports are perfect for a virtual travel record!
Plan a Geography Fair. Choose a country to present – make a short presentation such as a folk dance, a song, or poem, or set up a display which may include maps, pictures, projects, a country stamp or sticker for passports, and an international food sample enough for all in attendance. Children receive play passports and go to each station for country stamps (or stickers). They should record 2-4 facts they learn about each country in their passport.
Record places in stories in your passport. Whenever you read a story set in a world location, or study another culture, put a sticker or stamp in your passport for a record of all the places you’ve virtually visited.

Pioneer stories and activities are so intriguing!
The Guide to Canadian Government modules kept our family engaged through the election process. My children (13, 12 and 9) have enjoyed them.
