Canadian Province Research Project

Lesson Plans by Lauren Ayube

A province research project is the perfect summative activity for any study of Canada, geography class, or general research unit! Research is an important skill for children to learn at a young age. It exposes students to expository text, gives them practice determining important information, and enhances note taking and presentation skills. Students will love learning about landmarks, mottos, fun facts, history, and so much more for their chosen province!
