Boreal Forest Giant Floor Map
Forest maps don’t get any bigger than this. The latest giant floor map (GFM) produced by Canadian Geographic Education — the Boreal Forest — was unveiled in May in Toronto. The boreal GFM was created in partnership with the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement (CBFA) secretariat to help educate Canadian students about the important issues related to the management of the enormous wooded region that cuts across most of the country. Teachers can now reserve the 11-by- 8-metre giant boreal forest floor map, which is accompanied by a variety of curriculum- linked learning activities, for free. Canadian Geographic Education and The Royal Canadian Geographical Society have also teamed up with the CBFA to host a series of regional forums across the country to discuss issues surrounding the boreal and the CBFA.
