Maine Univ., Orono. New England - Atlantic Provinces - Quebec Center.
The similarities and differences of Canada and the United States are explored in this Learning Activity Packet (LAP). Ten learning objectives are given which encourage students to examine: 1) the misconceptions Americans and Canadians have about each other and their ways of life; 2) the effect and influence of French and English exploration and settlement on the two countries; 3) the recreational interests of Canadians and Americans; 4) geographical differences and similarities; 5) population patterns in Canada and the United States; 6) depletion of certain natural resources of the U.S. resulting in dependence upon Canada; 7) the border, how it separates, in name only, the two countries, and the effects of trade, immigration, and tourism; 8) the problems each country faces in world affairs; and, 10) the differences in the economic sophistication between the Canadians and the Americans, Canadian fear and resentment toward the U.S., and American ignorance and indifference. Each objective has several learning activities. Several charts are also included. Other LAPs are: SO 006 141, SO 006 142, and SO 006 145. (OPH)
