Great outdoors is our focus this week! From Pacific to Atlantic coast, Canada is home to the most fascinating natural landscapes. Manitoba, with its gorgeous lakes and rivers, is a good place to start your adventure! But, before you go, we have to share some safety tips with you.

Since outdoor activities are one of the favourite pastimes in Manitoba, we’d like to talk about the joys and risks, so that we’re all prepared to indulge in nature safely.

This week, you will:

  • learn about Canada’s wilderness experiences
  • give advice to your friend about staying safe in the wild

Your language task this week is to write a detailed phone message or email message to a friend who’s going camping. In your message, you will give him/her 10 pieces of advice about a chosen summer hazard. Yes, you pick a hazard, such as bears, lightning, tornadoes, or something else. Then prepare your message with 5-10 pieces of advice. Be creative. Use the grammar from the Grammar section below. Also, make sure to follow common standards for leaving phone messages and writing emails – www.google.com is your friend and knows it all!
