The Royal Canadian Geographical Society has created a new educational resource to mark the International Polar Year (IPY).
The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, in collaboration with the Canadian Council for Geographic Education and the Canadian Polar Commission, has developed a set of bilingual lesson plans on Canada’s North for elementary, intermediate and secondary schools in Canada. In support of IPY’s aim to engender the next generation of polar scientists, these lesson plans are certain to kindle an interest in the study of the Canadian North – its human and physical geography, and its past, present and future challenges. They offer teachers and students intriguing opportunities to explore and discover Northern issues from climate change and resource industries to transportation and Inuit settlement.
The lesson plans are freely available for viewing and downloading in word document or PDF formats at:
