down and settle. Explain that we are going to be exploring the map of 5 min

Body Time
Different Maps of 1) Have printouts of different kinds of Alberta maps
Alberta around the class. Have students walk around to
each map and figure out what kind of information is
being shown on each. Students can take a piece of
scrap paper to write down what each map is
showing, as we will be discussing it later.
2) Ask the students about the different maps and what 25 min
types of information they found on them? Why is it
important to have all these different maps? Why
wouldn’t we put all the information on one map?
3) Interactive topographic map of Alberta: http://en-

Review 1) Have a review discussion with students. Ask them

to name each of the provinces as well as the capital 20 min
of those provinces. This is what the quiz questions
will consist of, so they need to know each province
and the matching capital city. As well as the capital
city of Canada.

are you feeling for the quiz tomorrow?
