My home, my province, my country — Canada! Detailed maps introduce young children to the geography, history and culture of Canada. Revised and updated.
Enrich and expand every young child's view of the geography, history and culture of Canada! This bright and colourful beginner's atlas presents both a topographical map and a political map of each Canadian province and territory. The attractive spreads include informative text, photographs and illustrations of interest to children. They can locate mountains, lakes and rivers, and their own city, town or region. They can discover our natural resources and what people do for work and fun all across Canada. Designed to complement primary social studies curricula, the atlas begins with map concepts and skills, a map of the world and a map of Canada, and ends with a gazetteer. Also included are historical maps of Canada that provide children with a sense of how Canada has changed from the time of native peoples through the waves of immigration. This exciting atlas is an ideal reference for children at home and in the classroom.
Updates include population data, place names and names for Indigenous groups.
