"O Canada! Our home and native land!" Wait! Rather, is it, "Oh, say can you see?" When it comes to North America, the area that it spans is largely due to the United States and Canada. When it comes to these major nations, can you tell the difference between the two?
When it comes to the United States and Canada, they were both founded on land that belonged to the Native Americans. After the land was "discovered" by settlers, it would take years before the countries would become official nations. The United States would form in 1787 with Delaware's ratification of the Constitution. This would continue until 1959 when the last state, Hawaii, would ratify the Constitution. While the U.S.'s history began in the 1700s, Canada's would form some 80 years later. The British colony of the Province of Canada would join with New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to form the beginning stages of what we recognize Canada to be today. As time would go on, these countries would grow to have some similarities and many differences.
The United States and Canada both rank in the top three largest nations while the United States also has the world's third largest population. While English is an official language in both countries, French is also an official language in Canada. The two countries even share one of the biggest tourist attractions in North America - the Niagara Falls. From pronunciations to the most-viewed sport, the United States and Canada greatly differ from each other. Can you tell them apart? Let's find out with this quiz!
