Ontario: Yours to Discover - Taking Geography Beyond the Textbook

Presented at 2017 OAGEE Fall Conference from November 10th to November 11th, 2017

This session will explore the Edutravel Canadian Geography Program piloted for the first time in July 2017. We will virtually take you on our experiential journey that begins in Barrie and Collingwood, and travels to various locations in Ontario to experience the Geography curriculum. We develop our paddling skills and establish our team through various curricular and leadership activities in Geneva Park, Orillia. This prepares us for a three-day excursion and forest study in Algonquin Park. From Algonquin, we travel to Sudbury to understand the economic and environmental impacts of mining through the interactive activities at Science North and visit the site of the meteor that made the mineral deposits. From Sudbury travel to Tobermory to Bruce PeninsulaNational Park by way of Manitoulin Island where we experience the Northern Range of the Niagara escarpment and visit with residents of the Wikwemikong Reserve, the only unceded reserve in Canada. We then explore the livability of the city of Toronto and visit Kensington Market to investigate the cultural imprints of the world's most culturally diverse city. We end our course with a Blue Jays game. Participants of this workshop will hear our tales from the road and walk away with inspiration and lesson ideas of how to make Geography come alive for students of all learning styles.
