In this activity we are going to code an interactive map of Canada.

 

Thanks to Ryan Smith (@ryan_psmith) for the lesson plan.

 

The Scratch app will detect what colour your mouse cursor is hovering and reveal the appropriate Province or Territory. In order to correctly build this app, students would have to know accurately the location of each.

This is a great way to engage kids in Geography, logical reasoning and computational thinking. I would challenge them to extend the application by making it into a quiz.
