Giant Floor Map of Newfoundland and Labrador

Lay Summary 

Newfoundland and Labrador-based Fellows of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society fund-raised and provided their geographic expertise to help produce the first provincial edition in the series of giant floor maps from Canadian Geographic Education. Students in Newfoundland and Labrador will now be able to explore their province’s unique geography and geological history right in their schools thanks to this first-of-its-kind teaching tool. Through accompanying lesson plans, students from grades K to 12 will also learn about their province’s geography and develop a deeper appreciation for its culture and way of life.
