Watch the video. Make a list of the ten differences. Compare the information with p. 101 in the textbook. Do you think he is telling the truth? Do you need to look anything up? Imagine writing a list of “10 Differences between Denmark and Sweden”, what would be on your list?

What do these words mean: confused, Canadians, differences, political party, monopoly money, unlocked, crime rate, landscapes, population, tundra, universal healthcare, rude people, jug? They might come in handy when you watch the video.

Fahrenheit vs Celcius?

Mile vs. Kilometer?



Watch the “Canada Song” by Chris and Dan Hadfield

What are the different verses of the song about? How does Canada seem to you? Do you want to change the holiday plans?

What do these words mean: shoreline, at leisure, snowsuit, plugging in the car, lubricate, golden rule…what other words do you need to look up?
