Are you into nature in Canada? Or Canadian history? Better yet, do you love Canada’s nature and history –or want to know more? Then explore Canada’s nature and history with this free educational app.

The My Parks Pass Activity Guide is an interactive learning tool for iPad or Android that lets you explore Canada’s natural and cultural history right from home or in the classroom.

It’s available on Google Play or iTunes or as a classroom ready, printer-friendly PDF. It includes classroom activities for history, geography and science teachers, and was developed in line with Historical Thinking Concepts to encourage learners to think critically.

The activity guide is part of The My Parks Pass program, which provides all grade eight/secondary II students free entry to all of Parks Canada’s national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas for an entire year.

The program is delivered in partnership with Nature Canada, Parks Canada, The Historica-Dominion Institute and the Royal Canadian Geographic Society. Here’s more on My Parks Pass.
