In the Grade 9 Geography class at the YMCA Academy for the past few weeks, we have been using a huge 30 foot map of the energy sources in Canada. Our teacher Todd planned out a few lessons for the map and taught us about them. He then made us plan our own lessons that we would have to give the class.
We were made into groups and given a topic on Canada’s energy resources. In my group we had the topic of Alberta oil sand reserves. We came up with a few questions and made people also outline all the Canadian oil sand reserves.
I thought it was pretty nice getting out of the classroom and doing something different. It is a really cool map, mostly because of how big it is.
