Geomatics for Highschool Curriculum - This Web Site had been developed as a cooperative project with support and input from the federal government, private industry and high school teachers. The objective of the project was to develop a series of lessons suited for the new grade 9 curriculum in Ontario that could be distributed over the Internet. The lessons are designed to provide the resources and data necessary to explore ten grade 9 geography topics using Canada's ecozones as a common base. 

Google Earth Lessons - includes "how-to's", student activities, lesson starters and more!
