I am studying the art of Canada and studing a whole lot of different provinces and territories. So far I have learned that not every province/territory has a pro sport team.
How many have a pro sport team?
Not many only Alberta, Britidh Columbia, Quebec, and Saskatchewan
Peter that is so cool!
This is so interesting because some of our states in the US have multiple teams (ie: Jets/Giants, Mets/Yankees, Islanders/Rangers/Sabers)!
im not really into pro sports but thats preety weired im sure most of them are hockey thats a popular sport up there

In my Geography lens in G.R.A.P.E.S I am focusung on the natural resources of canads'a provinces such as Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. they are known as the "Bread Basket" of Canada. One fact about Alberta is that the province produces about 25 to 30 tonnes ( 28-33 tons) of coal and it is used to provide heat gor other people in the province. One fact about Saskatchewan is that Saskatchewan is the worlds leading producer of Potash. Potash is a salt that contains Potassium. One fact about Manitoba is that Wheat is the most important crop, accounting for more than 40% of all crop production. Those are just some of the many facts about the three provinces ("The Bread Basket')

One problem in the economy of Canada is global warming, global warming is causing glaciers are melting, the water levels are rising. That is causing more extreme weather throughout Canada. That is one problem about the economy in Canada.
Would this be under the Economy lens or would it lend itself more to Geography?

In geography today with Mrs.Smith i focused on geography in the strategy G.R.A.P.E.S. What I learned today is that the amount of products a province sells has a larger population. For example, in New Brunswick their farm stock is low due to their type of soil, however Manitoba's farm industry is the largest since settlers came to Canada from Scottland. I am very interested in other provinces geography, religon, achievements, politics, economy and social studies also known as G.R.A.P.E.S :)
