    For question #4, I meant to type "Atlantic Provinces."

    I don't know how to answer question #9. I experience difficulties reading maps in terms of finding how a location is in relation to another.

  • Geography (Ms. Sue) -

    I believe you're right now about # 4, although I'm not positive. My sources mention logging, tourism, fishing, and services as primary economic activities of the Atlantic provinces.

    All maps are laid out the same way with North at the top, East to the right, South at the bottom, and West to the left.
