1.What are 7 characteristics that make one region different from another? 2.Which Landform Region do we live in? Soil, Vegetation, Climate, Landforms, Animals, Economic Activities, Cultural Activities Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Lowlands
Canada’s Landform Regions Using your textbook and the worksheet provided, complete the information for Landform Regions #1-2 (15 mins)
Landform Region #1: Canadian Shield 1. The Canadian Shield was formed in stages when massive volcanoes erupted from the sea. Then erosion flattened the mountains creating the shield.
2. Igneous rock is formed from molten magma (fire and heat). When the mountains were being formed the pressure on the minerals (gold, silver, and nickel) and the heat from the magma formed the rocks.
3. Some resources found in the Canadian shield are: ◦Minerals (gold, silver, and nickel) ◦Mining ◦Hydroelectric power ◦Forestry ◦Farmland
Landform Region #2: Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Lowlands 1. Ontario and Quebec
2. During the ice ages, ice sheets moved south, pushing earth and rock along with them. Glaciers scraped out basins, which filled with water as the glaciers melted. 3. This is a low lying area which is very flat.
Continue with Landform Regions 3-4 Appalachians and Interior Plains (15 mins)
Landform Region #3: Appalachians 1. Aboriginal hunters and fishers were the first inhabitants. 2. The fertile soils of Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. 3. People mostly lived along the coasts of the island provinces. People tend to live near the water. 4. Lowlands – A, Low Mountains - B ** Oldest Mountains (and mountain range) in Canada**
Landform Region #4: Interior Plains 1. Sedimentary Rock 2. Fossilized sea life which was chemically changed into oil and natural gas. 3. Missouri Coteau, Manitoba Escarpment
Continue with Landform Regions 5-6 Western Cordillera and the Innuitians (15 mins)
Landform Region #5: Western Cordillera 1. Coast Range, Interior Plateau, Rocky Mountains 2. Fig. 2.16: Geologic formation of the Western Cordillera: a) folding of the Rocky Mountains

Landform Region #6: Innuitians 1. Appalachians, Rockies, Innuitians 2. They know this because there are oil and gas deposits there.
QUIZ #4 Complete the Quiz. Tomorrow you will need to know all 10 terms. Directions: Complete the chart below, by selecting eight (8) terms of your choice and writing out their definitions. Good Luck!

Continue with Landform Region 7 The Arctic (10 mins)
Landform Region #7: The Arctic 1. The Arctic Region is mostly made up of islands formed from sedimentary rock. The surface is very stony and has very little vegetation. 2. a) The Yukon b) Whitehorse c) Ellesmere Island
