Period 4- CGG301

Ms. Pak’s Grade 11 Travel and Tourism class will be shown websites and databases that will help when it comes to researching for future assignments.

For currency conversion, have a look at the following links:

Bank of Canada

For assignments, you will be using the APA school of citation.

The file discussed with the class for easy access can be found here The APA Working File.

For citing photographs note the following example from OWLPurdue:

Photograph (not associated with a museum)

Photographer, P. (Year of publication). Title of photograph [Photograph]. Source. URL.

Ryan, S. (2019). [Sea smoke on Lake Michigan] [Photograph] New York Times

Note: if the photograph does not have a title, describe the photograph and put that description in square brackets.

Remember to look to OWL @ Purdue for other questions that arise about citation. It’s where Ms. Kelso or Mrs. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.

Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library! We hope you all had a very relaxing and calming two weeks away from school.


Period 1 – CGC1P1-11

Here is a PDF of your assignment. Please click it to download a copy for yourself.

Ms. Sukhra’s Grade 9 Geography class will be working on their Big City Slideshow assignment.

Students will need to research their selected Canadian Metropolitan Areas (CMAs) and produce a slideshow via Googleslides.



You should likely use the Canadian Atlas. This is a great resource of geographic data for Canadian locations.

The Canadian Encyclopedia is also an excellent resource for all information about different CMAs.

Lastly, you should look up the governmental and tourism websites for your CMA. They will be filled with interesting and up-to-date information about your location.
