Step 1: The territory
You must first trace the territory of Quebec from 1905 to using the DRAW POLYGON icon. It must be coloured blue
. You must title your blue territory drawing "Quebec in 1905".
You must then trace the territory of Quebec in 1980 using the same tool. It must be coloured red
. You must title your red territory drawing "Quebec in 1980".
You can also use the LINES tool if your teacher approves.
For both shapes and lines you can use the SELECT/MODIFY arrow to change its colour and adjust its form!
Step 2: The Population
For the population of Quebec in 1905, you must put a POINT OF INTEREST marker in the town of Gaspé in the Gaspé region. Be careful and zoom right down into the town to place your marker. Then title it "Population in 1905" and write in the description the number of inhabitants in Quebec province at that time.
For the population of Quebec in 1980, you must place another POINT OF INTEREST marker, this time on the city of Montreal. Title it "Population of 1980" and write the number of inhabitants in Quebec at that time in its description. Take care to properly Zoom and put your icon right in Montreal.
