The Grade 9 Geography classes of this semester embarked on a Geography field trip to the Toronto Christmas Market to participate in a walking tour of the geographic features of Toronto’s Distillery District. We looked at the District’s growth, urbanization, expansion, and role in the many events that occurred before and after Canadian confederation.
The rest of the day was given to the students and the teachers to walk around in the frigid cold, view or buy some of the items from shops as Christmas gifts, and eat the food offered at the countless cafes, boutiques, and gourmet stores. It was a great trip that allowed us to have a deeper understanding and respect of the role Toronto’s Distillery District has had in history while experiencing all the wonderful facets of the Square.
