Our Grade 7 class is currently learning about early Canadian history starting from the year 1713 up to Confederation (this is where we pick up in Grade 8!). As part of our unit, we have been looking at the key roles that existed during the fur trade, such as the voyageurs, coureur de bois, and Indigenous women. Students each chose a job from a list and had to use the program Thinglink.com to share a description of the job, the challenges of the job, what an average day was like, and lastly some fun facts about the job. Below you will find the QR codes that connect to each Thinglink assignment.
