This website from the Royal British Columbia Museum introduces students to five important environments found in British Columbia: Mountains, Forests, Grasslands, Waters, and Cities. Each environment section includes topical features under the following headings: Nature, First Peoples, and History. Examples of feature topics include Mammals in Winter, Clothing From the Land, Life in the Ocean, and Introduced Species, to name a few. The aesthetically pleasing website keeps text to a minimum as it relies primarily on beautiful photographs and interactive maps to share histories and other information. Educators will find a brief Teacher's Guide providing an overview of the website, and a simple list of teaching ideas. The website is available in French and English.
