In support of the teaching of Grade 7 Social Studies, the following websites have been identified, collected and annotated by Don Anderson, Duncan Anderson, Stephanie Cardinal, Bobbie-Jo Douglas, Cynthia Fisher and Dave McCann. Our thanks to them for their efforts.
As always with web sites, checking in advance to confirm that the site is still active and appropriate for your students is suggested.
The Stowaway Adventure has six core activities that will teach students how to access and interpret real time marine data. They track an actual ship on the ocean, determine its destination, predict when it will arrive at port, and predict any rough weather that might impact the ship's arrival time.
