Tourists in New Brunswick
Option 1: Tourists in New Brunswick
The Challenge Get into groups of six. Imagine the following scenario: A group of tourists have arrived at the Provincial Tourist Information Centre in Moncton, New Brunswick. They do not know what there is to see and do in New Brunswick but they are keen to explore. Two members of each group will become the on-duty receptionists at the Tourism Office. The remainder of the group form a tourist group. The tourists ask the receptionists to recommend what they should see and do during their visit. All the tourists have different interests. Ask the girls to brainstorm some of the things they have learned about New Brunswick and act out their scene. For more information log on to: www.TourismNewBrunswick.caThe Confederation Bridge

Before its official naming, Prince Edward Islanders often referred to the bridge as the “Fixed Link”. Construction took place from October 1993 to May 1997 and cost $1.3 billion. The 12.9-kilometre bridge opened on May 31, 1997.

The Hope Well RocksThe Hopewell Rocks, also called the Flowerpots Rocks or simply The Rocks, are rock formations caused by tidal erosion in The Hopewell Rocks Ocean Tidal Exploration Site in New Brunswick. They stand 40–70 feet tall.
Irving Nature Park
The Irving Nature Park is a 600-acre site created by J.D. Irving, Limited to help protect an environmentally significant area. Just minutes from downtown Saint John, this special part of the Fundy coastline is a place where families can come and experience the various ecosystems of the Southern New Brunswick coastline. You can enjoy the rugged beauty, boardwalks and lookout points. Special events like meteor showers, geological history, moonlight snowshoeing and story sessions are all free.
St. Martins Sea Caves
I highly recommend to visit St. Martins and the Sea Caves where at low tide you can walk out 300 feet onto the Ocean floor, explore natural sea caves, climb a lighthouse, visit covered bridges or relax and enjoy the best Seafood Chowder. It is great for all ages. Fun to explore as a family or for a more relaxing experience alone
