Virtual Field Trip for Home Learning: Exploring the Fur Trade
This live, interactive program introduces participants to the big picture of the fur trade. Investigate the different roles of those involved in the fur trade (e.g. trappers and traders) and the development of fur trading companies. Learn how a trading post worked and uncover some of the technologies, objects, and ideas traded between Europeans and First Nations.
This program is targeted at the grades 4, 5, and 11 curricula; for example, participants will learn about the development and expansion of the fur trade in the Northwest and identify the interactions between Indigenous Peoples and newcomers.
