Intro about the Country
Canada is a vast and rugged country. From north to south it spans more than half of the Northern Hemisphere. From west to east it stretches almost 7560 kilometers (4,700 miles) across six time zones. It is the second largest country in the world but has only one-half of one percent of the world’s population.
Canada features numerous lakes, rivers, majestic western mountains, rolling central plains, and forested eastern valleys. The Canadian Shield, a hilly region of lakes and swamps, stretches across northern Canada and has some of the oldest rocks on Earth. The country boasts 41 national parks, a variety of provincial parks and three marine conservation areas.
Canada’s far north is dominated by snow, ice, and glaciers. Native Canadians, called First Nations people, live in this region by hunting and fishing. (adapted from https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/geography/countries/article/canada)
