Newfoundland and Labrador

Hi guys! We completed our first Canadian Province, the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Here are some great facts the boys and I learned about this province.

Fun Facts: 
  • Newfoundland is referred to as "The Rock"
  • Newfoundland is located on the east coast of Canada
  • Its capital city is St. John
  • Provincial flower is the Pitcher Plant
  • Provincial bird the Puffin
  • Labrador's coast boarders the Labrador Sea and a part of the Atlantic Ocean
  • Famous attractions include: Jelly bean row, L'Anse aux Meadows famous Viking settlement

Here's a loose schedule I followed. We did not get to everything I planned. 

Province Coloring Page/Worksheets:

The boys also worked on a fact sheet about the Province. 

Province poster, both the worksheet and poster are from here.

The boys designed a province t-shirt. They drew jelly bean row, pitcher plant, and a puffin. 
Worksheet from here.


After reading a non-fiction text about Puffins, the boys worked on a craft. Template for this craft is from here.


We enjoyed some great books both fiction and non-fiction. Our favorite was the Hungry Plants and Yikes, Vikings.

We ended our study with stamping our Canadian passport. 

I hope you learned some new facts about this wonderful province. We're off to our next adventure!
