It is important for students to know the locations of the provinces and territories on a map, and the capital cities of each. Filling out a blank map or creating a map from scratch helps students retain information in a more concrete way. For this activity, students will create a poster showing Canada’s 10 provinces, 3 territories, capitals, and any major bodies of water. Students will also add illustrations that apply, like animals, symbols, geography, and more. Students may use a blank map of Canada, or use the template provided to create their own map.
