Grade 9 & 10 Geography and Urban Planning

Geography and Urban Planning

The program is designed for participation by Grades 9 and 10 secondary level students, with emphasis on geography (Academic and Applied), and urban planning. From a perspective like no other in Toronto, activities for students during their visit to the CN Tower will provide the opportunity to:

  • identify and analyse patterns of spatial organization, including land use, population distribution, and ecozones;

  • demonstrate an understanding of the characteristics of human systems (e.g., transportation, population, communication, energy networks, industry);

  • demonstrate a knowledge of Canada's significant world contributions (e.g., engineering, telecommunications technology);

  • demonstrate an ability to collect, organize, and synthesize information from a variety of sources to identify the characteristics of Canada's geography.

The visit to the CN Tower will provide an overview of this national icon and defining landmark of the city of Toronto and will also spark deeper investigation of many cross-curricular topics

Grade 9 – 12 Hospitality and Tourism

Designed for secondary school students, the CN Tower Hospitality Education Program visit begins with a brief slide show presentation on the CN Tower as a tourist attraction followed by a behind-the-scenes tour of our kitchens. During the tour our Chef will highlight items such as health and safety in the kitchen, use of equipment and sourcing ingredients with an umbrella discussion on hospitality as a career choice. The discussion during the tour can be shaped by the teacher and students and their questions while on the tour. Students are provided access to the Look Out and Glass Floor levels of the CN Tower following the kitchen tour.

All Grades - Science and Technology with the Legends of Flight 3D Film

Legends of Flight propels audiences on a 3D journey across a century of aviation to explore the gravity-defying world of flight and to witness the unfolding of one of the greatest aviation projects of our age. Creating the next great jetliner is a gargantuan technical challenge and entrepreneurial gamble. As a radical new airplane evolves in the assembly bay of a leading aircraft builder, its test pilot takes us into the sky with classic aircraft to explore the ingredients that can make or break a great flying machine. From the Wright brothers to the leading-edge of the jet-age, Legends of Flight weaves an extraordinary 3D flightpath through the technology and magic of aviation.
