Canadian Geography Test
Today, students were sent home with a French outline of their upcoming geography test and some study notes. Students will be tested on the following:
- Naming the 10 provinces and 3 territories and identifying them on a map of Canada
- Including a title, a rose compass (the four cardinal points), and a legend on a map
- Naming the capital city of each province and territory
- Naming the capital of Canada
In the study notes, I have included a blank copy of a map of Canada. Please feel free to make as many copies as you like for students to practice with or to email me if you require additional copies.
I have encouraged students to use the Stompin' Tom - "Capitals Song" to help them remember the names of the different capital cities.
I have also shown students the website http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/Canadian_Geography.htm which has a variety of different geography games that will test students knowledge of the different provinces and capital cities. This may make studying a little more fun :) The website is in English, but the French and English names are very similar.
The geography test will be Friday, February 6th, 2014
**There will be no dictée or spelling during the week of the test so that students may focus on studying.
