Peuples autochtones et Europeens, Parti 3: Nouvelle-France For Use with Google Classroom™️ is a digital resource intended to support the 2018 Ontario Social Studies Curriculum. (This Strand A unit used to be called First Nations and Europeans. ) The activities in this resource correspond to the 3-part lesson plans in my regular unit: Indigenous Peoples and Europeans Part 3 – New France.
