Activity Number 16 - Mapping
To locate the capital of Canada, the 10 provinces and 3 territories and their capital cities on a map and label the 3 oceans, the Great Lakes, and Hudson and James bays.
- Copies of the blank map of Canada
- Atlas (optional)
- Jumbled list of 10 provinces, 3 territories, capital cities, and bodies of water
Give each student a blank map and a copy of the list below.
Ask your students to label the capital of Canada on the map, then match the capital cities with the correct province or territory and label them as well. Finally, have them label the larger water bodies on the map from the list provided.
As your atlas may not have the new territory of Nunavut, you may need to help them find it this time round.
