The Great Fur Fair Culminating Event is an engaging activity, ideal at the end of a unit for helping students synthesize their background knowledge about the interactions between Indigenous Peoples, settlers, traders, and other people in New France. This unit has been created to help meet the REVISED 2018 Ontario Ministry of Education Social Studies Curriculum for Grade 5.
Students become time-traveling reporters, sent to investigate the fur fair in Montreal in 1682. They are provided with “historical figure profiles”, and asked to create questions and answers for these figures in order to create an oral or written report on this event for modern-day students. Students do NOT take on the roles of these figures themselves.
This product includes:
– teacher’s notes
