Transcript of Canadian Geography Assignment

Mixedwood Plains Ecozone What are Glacial Landforms? Glacial Landforms are landforms shaped by the forces of glacial movements For example, Eskers:
- Left behind 10,000 years ago
- Meandering ridge of gravel
- Created by deposition
- Glacial streams filled with sand Kettle Lakes:
- Lake created by glaciers
- Created by deposition
- Filled by rainwater or runoff Gravel:
- formed by the erosion of rock from glacial retreat Escarpment/Canyon:
- a steep slope that occurs from erosion or faulting Badlands:
- formed when the top-soil of the land is eroded away
- there aren't enough nutrients in soil for vegetation
- it creates hills with scars and "stains" of colour from rainwater particles Valleys:
- formed by erosion from a river
- glacial valleys (u valleys) are formed by glacial erosion in a regular valley Crevasses:
- a large crack
in rock
- formed when
water freezes and melts over the seasons Vegetation Apple Trees:
- either planted by farmers or carried
by winds, water and animal life Milkweed:
- commonly found in mixed woods plains
- named after the milky liquid released by the plant
- has large yellow-spotted leaves Jack Pines
- fire adapted
- cones remain closed until a forest fire occurs Maple Trees:
- commonly found in mixed woods plains
- leaves have 11 points American Beech:
- an endangered tree because of foreign insects Oak:
- appears moderately in Mixedwoods Plains ecozone Eastern Hornbeam:
- nicknamed Ironwood from very strong trunk
- can be found in the micro climate zone slopes facing the north in Ontario S Snakes Squirrels Lake Trout Spiders Turkey Butterflies Butterflies 4. Rural Land Use Farming
- Using the fertile soil of Toronto to grow crops Water - Powered Mills
- operated by waterwheel Mill Pond
- damned area of water helping direct enough water to a water wheel for it to function properly Boundaries
- used to distinguish the boundaries of farm land.
- usually done with stone gathered from the field Railways
- important part of life
- shaped the population distribution because it affected which places would have more people, which landscapes are affected the most, and which towns would survive Kiln
- a device used to heat crushed limestone
- product wad used to stick bricks together Quarry
- used to mine gravel for various work
- roads Roadways
- made of either brick or dirt Cistern
- used for storing water, placed on a high elevation for water to flow to the required places ND The Caterpillars Thanks for watching! For example... Crack Willow:
- named for the sound the branches make when snapped By: Michael, Valiant, Wendy and Zi Yu Table of Contents: 1. Glacial Landforms
2. Vegetation
3. Animals
4. Rural Land Use Tree Nurseries
- used to grow trees in relative safety 1. Glacial Landforms 2. 3. Vultures Erratic:
- large rock carried by a glacial stream
- after glacial stream slows, heavy rock sinks to the bottom and is out of place (have different characteristics Bridges (Bailey Bridge)
-built after World War II
-used extensively after hurricane Hazel
-built to cross valley and rivers/streams Cemeteries
-made of limestone
-built outside towns
-all small towns/ cities had a cemetery yay... anything else? What are the mixedwood plains? Characteristics include:
- smallest ecozone
- has a highly changeable temperature
- contains gentle rolling hills and big lakes
- contains a lot of flora and fauna
- half of the population of Canada lives here
