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
