The second of three main parts designed for fifth grade students, resource unit six presents an overview of the patterns and a system of regionalization on Canada, and deals with case studies which illustrate the fact that man uses his physical environment in terms of his cultural values, perceptions, and level of technology. The approach and format in the latter part of this unit, differing from previous units, is that students prepare illustrated studies of a series of important towns and cities on a traverse across southern Canada from west to east, giving more understanding of the regions within which they are found. Pupils look first at the city today and then identify factors which helped bring about the present development. The teacher's guide ED 062 226 provides program descriptions, course objectives, teaching strategies, and an explanation of format. Other related documents are ED 061 134, ED 062 227, and SO 002 732 through SO 002 741. (Author/SJM)
