About this Resource

Grade 5. In this project, the student can learn about Canadian provinces and their short forms, provincial capitals and bodies of water. In the Label Provinces activity, the student can drag and drop the names of the provinces and territories onto a map. The Province Short Forms is a matching activity. In the Flashcard Capitals, the student clicks to advance the province by capital matches. The Label Capitals provides a map and the student can drag and drop the capitals to the appropriate provinces. The Label Bodies of Water activity is a set of maps onto which the student can drag the names. These activities are set in non-quiz mode so feedback on accuracy is provided. This can be changed in the design mode by right-clicking on the page in the project view and selecting Edit Shared Variables, and changing the Quiz mode to yes.
