Activity Five: Individual Research and Class Discussion

  1. Building the Rideau Canal involved many engineering firsts. Research the scientific aspects of building the canal and present them to the rest of your class.
  2. Preserving our history is an important way not only to remember the past, but also to learn from it. Research UNESCO world heritage sites. What types of sites receive the designation? Are there any near your community? In a short paper, discuss a Canadian UNESCO heritage site, and outline why it received the designation.
