Activity 9

Map It (visual arts, math, geography)

Students will draw a map showing Canada in 1865 before Confederation, then one showing Canada in 1891 after Macdonald's death. The purpose of this activity is to draw two maps that compare Canada before and after Confederation, showing the effect it had on the borders and definition of the country.
