All Aboard: "Just for the Halibut!" "Eh" Journey Through Canada's Atlantic Region
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic, Standards-based Unit on the Canadian Atlantic Region The grade five unit focuses on the human and physical geography of Canada and the Diversity of the land and its people. By understanding the physical geography, the students will then make connections to the people of Canada in terms of where they live, how they make their living and how they relate to their environment. For this particular unit we have focused on the Atlantic Region (Appalachian Highlands). Further units will be created for each of the Canadian land regions thereby covering the grade five, Topic A, curriculum.
