Virtual Field Trip: Exploring the Fur Trade
Tuesday, May 26 • 10:00 am – 10:30 am
This Zoom webinar date is sold out, but still available for viewing via Facebook Live.
See additional dates below to register your students for a live interactive Virtual Field Trip or watch it streamed live on the Manitoba Museum Facebook page at 10:00 on May 26. If you have questions about booking your class, please contact Anya [email protected]
This program introduces students to the big picture of the fur trade. We will investigate the different roles of those involved in the fur trade (e.g. trappers and traders) and the development of fur trading companies. Students will learn how a trading post worked and uncover some of the technologies, objects, and ideas traded between Europeans and First Nations people.
This program is geared towards grade 4 and 5 students, but all are welcome.
