Transcript of The 5 Themes of Geographic Inquiry

The Five Themes of Geographic Inquiry Place and Location Region Movement Environment Interaction Canada Canada's capital city,
Ottawa, is located at
45 degrees North and
75 degrees West. Relative Location Canada is located North
of the United States of
America and South of the
Arctic Ocean. Canada is in
the Northern Hemisphere
and on the continent
of North America. Absolute Location By: Kiersten Johnston Political Divisions Canada is divided into 10 provinces:
1. Alberta
2. British Columbia
3. Manitoba
4. New Brunswick
5. Newfoundland and Labrador
6. Nova Scotia
7. Ontario
8. Quebec
9. Prince Edward Island
10. Saskatchewan
And 3 territories:
1. Yukon
2. Northwest Territories
3. Nunavut Nationalities and Culture Canadian culture explains the artistic, musical, literary, culinary, political and social elements that make up Canada. Canada's culture has been influenced by European culture and traditions, especially by French and British cultures, it has also been greatly influenced by American culture because of migration. Canada's National
flag Customs and Traditions Canadians celebrate many holidays similar to their neighboring countries. Some celebrations include: Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the birth of their country on July 1st. Canada has a wide range of religious groups. Most of Canadians worship the Roman Catholic Church while many have no religion at all.

Roman Catholic: 42.6%

Protestant: 23.3%

Other: 18.1%

None: 16% Religion Where is it? What is it like to live there? Why move there or leave there? How do you get there? What is it like there? How do people relate to their environment and change the landscape? Similarities Canada is very similar to its neighbor the United States they both speak the same languages and have the same climate (depending how far south you go.) Depending on where you live, you could get to Canada by car, bus, plane, boat, or even by foot!

Ennismore is located in Ontario, Canada so it would take no time at all to travel from Ennismore to Canada. Transportation Migration There are more pull factors than push in Canada.
Canada is a free country and i think this is a big pull factor. the climate is moderate; the summers aren't too hot and the winters aren't too cold. there are many good paying jobs available in Canada as well as the schools to get there. Imports and Exports Canada imports mostly machinery and equipment, motor vehicles and parts, electronics, chemicals, electricity and durable consumer goods. Canada’s main imports partners are: United States, European Union, China and Mexico. Canada exports motor vehicles and parts, industrial machinery, aircraft, and electronics. The United States is by far its largest trading partner, accounting for about 79% of exports. Climate How People Use And
Change The Environment Canadians use and change the environment by farming and building roads. We also change the land for recreation such as hockey arenas and playgrounds. Where Have People Settled? People in canada have settled in southern Canada or near the border to the United States, although many people have settled on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Why Have People Settled Here? I think people have chosen to settle along the coast of the Altantic and Pacific Ocean for the proximity to water as well as the pure beauty of the landscape. I believe people have chosen to live in Southern Canada to be closer to the city. Landscape The temperture in Canada ranges from -32.0 degrees celcius to 26.6 degrees celcius. In Canadas capital city, Ottawa, the average high in January is -6.1. The average low in January is -15.3. the average low in July is 26.5 and the average high is 15.4. In 2009 the average percipitation per year was 537 mm. The official Languages of Canada are English and French but Chinese and spanish are also spoken within the country.

English: 66.5%

French: 21.9%

Chinese: 1.2%

Spanish: 0.7% Language Canada is a total of 125,570 miles squared.
I would say canada is shaped like a fat horse with a person riding on it. canada has many unique features such as the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia. another unique feature is the five Great Lakes, Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, and Lake Superior located south of Ontario, Canada.
