This interactive historical thinking task engages students to learn about what this would have been like to participate in a fur trade at the time. I would use this as a interactive activity to really help students to think historically.
Your class can collaborate to learn about First Nations, Metis and Inuit people and their connection to the land. This activity can be modified for Grade 4 or Grade 5 social studies in Alberta.
These interactive projects are great for teaching students about the different geographical regions of Canada without much prep for teachers.
