Transcript of Living and Working in Ontario

Living and Working in Ontario
Lesson One: Working With the Seasons
Overall Expectation B1:
Demonstrate an understanding of some key aspects of the interrelationship between the natural environment, land use, employment opportunities, and the development of municipal regions in Ontario.
Specific Expectation B1.2:
describe some major connections between features of the natural environment and the type of employment that is available in a region with reference to two or more municipal regions in Ontario.



Lesson Two: Land Use in Ontario
Overall Expectation B3:
Describe major landform regions and types of land use in Ontario and some of the ways in which land use in various Ontario municipalities addresses human needs and wants, including the need for jobs.

Specific Expectation B3.6:
Compare some aspects of land use in two or more municipalities.

Lesson Three: Urban vs. Suburban
Overall expectation B3: Describe major landform regions and types of land use in Ontario and some of the ways in which land use in various Ontario municipalities addresses human needs and wants, including the need for jobs.

Specific Expectation B3.4: Identify and describe the main types of employment that are available in two or more municipal regions in Ontario.
Minds On
what jobs are dependent on seasons? Why? what are some jobs connected to lakes, forests and rivers; to the city

Hands On
Venn Diagram: What Jobs are available during each season? What about Both Seasons?
Consolidation
Gallery Walk to view other students work
What jobs can be done all year round?
Minds On
Read Book: Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
What is the difference between city and country?
Hands On
Student City Handout: Students will fill in which parts are rural, suburban, and urban.
Consolidation
Review the map as a class

Begin With video
Class Discussion:
We live in a Suburban city, Orillia, but many parts of Orillia can be considered as a rural city.
List some jobs that exist in the Suburban area and those that exist in rural area.
Are there more job opportunities in the Suburban part of Orillia or rural part of Orillia. Why?
In which area of Orillia are jobs dependent on natural resources.?


Print out career names
Have the students break up into their specified job category and brainstorm in their group:
1)what type of municipal region they live and work in
2) some characteristics of their jobs


Have the groups share their ideas with the class.
Write key points on the board as they present.
Lesson 4: Major Landform Regions
Overall expectation B3: Describe major landform regions and types of land use in Ontario and some of the ways in which land use in various Ontario municipalities addresses human needs and wants, including the need for jobs.

Specific Expectation B3.3: Identify the major landform regions in Ontario, and describe the major characteristics that make each distinct.

Minds on

Show students the map of the different landform regions in Ontario and discuss the location of each (the Canadian Shield, the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Lowlands, the Hudson Bay lowlands).
Hands On
Split the class into groups, and assign each group a landform region of Ontario. For each group provide an information page about that region (1 for each student so they all have a copy to read from).

Have the students read about their landform region as a group.

Based on the information that they have learned about their landform region, ask students to draw a labelled diagram picture of that region, including key land features such as lakes, trees, etc.
Consolidation
Have students present their diagram as a group to the class

Keep their diagrams and post them in the classroom along with the map introduced in the minds on.
Lesson 5: Land Use in Ontario: Wants and Needs
Overall expectation B3: Describe major landform regions and types of land use in Ontario and some of the ways in which land use in various Ontario municipalities addresses human needs and wants, including the need for jobs.

Specific Expectations B3.5: Describe major types of land use and how they address human needs and wants.

Lesson 7: Culminating Task Continued

Class interview on guest speakers talking about their jobs:
1) a farmer
2) class teacher.
Students will be given a venn diagram to record the different and similar needs and wants of the school teacher and the farmer.

As a class discuss the importance of the needs and wants of different occupations.
Where can we find these needs?
Are we restricted or limited to any of them?

Introduce the culminating task, and explain that we will be making our very own 3D towns.

Explain that today we will be opening up google maps, and start zoomed out, looking at the world, and ask students where we live. Progressively zoom in, looking at Canada, Ontario, Orillia, and other cities around southern Ontario.
While we do this, ask students questions about things they notice such as city areas have higher concentration of streets, whereas more rural areas have less roads, and more open space which is likely farm land (more grid marks on the map in Toronto than around Orillia).

Hand out chart paper, and tell the students to find a partner and start mapping out an imaginary town of their choice.

Decide whether their town will be rural, suburban, or urban, and which landform region it will be located in.



At the end of the lesson have students do a gallery walk and view their peer's cities, towns, and villages.

Tell students to think about why their peers might have placed buildings and other land features in the positions that they have, considering the type of municipality they have chosen to create.

Tell students that they will be making their 3D towns the following day and inform them that supplies will be provided but to bring in any special materials they want for their towns (empty tissue boxes, etc.)

Hands On
Consolidation

Discuss and review the culminating assignment which was started during the previous class (lesson 6).

Supplies will be provided at this point to begin making their 3D towns: Bristol board, glue, coloured construction paper, cardboard boxes, and pencil crayons, scissors, glue, tape, etc.







Students will find their partners and create their city, town or village in 3D.




Students will write a reflection about their city, town or village.
What have they created?
What landform region is their city, town or village located in?
What features have they included and their reasons for each?
Why their features are located where they are? What is the population?
