Laurentian Plateau or Bouclier Canadien. "The canadian Shield is a massive geological shieldcovered by a thin layer of soil".
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Shield It is an area mainly covered by
igneous rock which relates
to its long volcanic history. It streches North from the Great Lakes to the Arctic Ocean covering over half of Canada. "The Canadian Shield was the first part of North America to be permanently elevated above sea level and has remained almost wholly untouched by successive encroachments of the sea upon the continent".
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Shield The average temperature in the winter is 18 °C (0 °F), and in the summer it is 25 °C (77 °F). In total, it covers approximately 8,000,000 km2. It first formed over 2 billion years ago.
The landscape is mostly grass, bog,
rocky with low mountain ranges
with few forests in the far north. The vegetation in the Canadian Shield region
of Canada is very different than the rest of Canada.
The vegetation of the Canadian Shield is mostly trees.
"The forests are mixed with birch trees, aspen trees, tamarack trees,
black and white spruce tress, willow trees, hemlock trees, pine trees
and balsam fir tress".
The wild life in the canadian shield is the peregrine falcon, golden
eagle, barren ground carribou, arctic fox. they all live here because
they can all stand the cold climate. Information from:
