Question Circle the thematic map you used Then answer the question in complete sentences. 1 Physical Features Climate Zones Vegetation Zones Population Density Economic Activity. Most hydroelectric power in Canada and the United States is produced in Washington. British Columbia and Quebec All three states and provinces have rivers where dams can. be built to produce power, 2 Physical Features Climate Zones Vegetation Zones Population Density Economic Activity. California has several mild climate zones so it is mostly warm year round California also has a. variety of economic activities trade and manufacturing farming fishing and livestock rais. ing Both factors might attract a large population Nunavut on the other hand is very cold with. subarctic and tundra climates There is little work for people since the land is used mainly for. hunting and gathering, 3 Physical Features Climate Zones Vegetation Zones Population Density Economic Activity. The least populated area of the continental United States is the Rocky Mountains and. Great Basin This area has a very high elevation generally over 5 000 feet and sometimes. over 10 000 feet The areas of lower elevation are in a desert scrub vegetation zone which. might not be very habitable, 4 Physical Features Climate Zones Vegetation Zones Population Density Economic Activity. Toronto with a population of over 4 million people is Canada s largest city The city has a fairly. mild humid continental climate which is warmer than much of the rest of Canada The city. is located within a trade and manufacturing area of Canada which would provide a lot of jobs. for people, 5 Physical Features Climate Zones Vegetation Zones Population Density Economic Activity.

G u i d e t o S t u d e n t H a n d o u t, Challenge 5 Using Maps to Analyze a Field Photograph. We think the field photograph best matches Location. Supporting evidence statements,climate zones, 1 From the map we learned that this location is in a subarctic climate zone. In the field photograph we see that even though it seems to be a nice day the man is wearing a sweater. scarf hat and gloves Also there is snow on the mountains. vegetation zones, 2 From the map we learned that this location is near an island with coniferous.
forests but surrounded by ice cap, In the field photograph we see mountains with trees but also with snow. economic activity, 3 From the map we learned that this location is near petroleum resources. In the field photograph we see a man holding an oar covered in oil He appears to be cleaning up an oil spill. The red float is containing the oil covered water Outside the float the water looks clean. population density, 4 From the map we learned that this location has a population density of under. 2 people per square mile Another possible answer From the physical features map we learned that this. location is near an island with an elevation between 0 and 1 000 feet surrounded by mountains near the. Gulf of Alaska, In the field photograph we see no buildings or houses on the land beyond the boat suggesting that not. many people live in this area Another possible answer In the field photograph we see a man in a boat on a. large body of water with low mountains behind him, Teachers Curriculum Institute Canada and the United States 6.
