Have you ever wanted to rent an RV, grab the kids, and head off on a road trip across Canada?
Travelling is expensive, time-consuming,
and requires a lot of planning.
What if you could visit all of Canada without that stress?
Take your kids on a tour of Canada – from Newfoundland to BC and through the three territories - all from the comfort of your home.
In order to keep this trip continuously up-to-date, The Canadian Adventure is now all online. Fresh and updated with new extras & links.
"I used [this] with my kids aged 7-12. It was a great way to overview all of Canada and was our lead-in to Canadian history. We especially enjoyed the links to various YouTube videos to see and hear the places we 'visited'. Thanks so much for putting it together. " -Kara
Planning a unit study like this takes a lot of time and work to put together. I've done all the hard work for you - pulling resources together to make this painless and as prep-free as possible for you.
Here's what you'll be doing on your journey.
Popular Tourist Spots
No cross-country trip of Canada would be complete without stops at Green Gables, the Parliament Buildings, Niagara Falls, the Rockies, and Stanley Park.
Discover lesser known Canadian places like a desert, a magnetic hill, a sleeping giant, a lake monster, an igloo church, and more!
One of the best things about travelling is the opportunity to taste something new from the place you are visiting. Try lobster, tourtiere, nanaimo bars, arctic char and other foods.
This trip might be virtual, but you aren't! Get your hands busy with art projects, mapping, crafts, and a personalized scrapbook that you make along the way.
Videos give a first hand view of things to do and see, but there are also walking tours through Google Maps plus interactive games and websites.
History & Culture
So many of the moments we visit and experience as we head across Canada are connected to our past: First Nations communities, pioneers, Confederation, dinosaurs, and more!
To expand your adventure, you will also get both of these extras:
The Companion Journal
Printable companion journal to use with The Canadian Adventure. Includes a page for each province with space for 3 things they liked or saw and to draw or make a collage. Also has a before & after journal prompt page, space to design your own flag, and a map of Canada.
Geography Matching Game
Want a fun way to learn and review what you know about the Canadian provinces? Here’s a matching game!
Included for each province and territory is a set of four cards that show a map, the flower, the flag, and the capital city. Print and cut out each card – probably on cardstock for added durability, and then match them up.
