History

Teaching about New France

Children remember more of their history lesson when they can be involved in that period of history. Parks Canada has a great page to teach your children about New France and what it was like to live there between 1640 and 1740 AD. Your children can go to this link and defend New France.

They can go to Widow Chaure’s (click on soldier) and then build the palisades ordered by the Comte de Frontenac.

They can keep track of information in a free printable Soldier’s Notebook.
These are only a few of the activities from this website that your children can participate in.
More teaching ideas will be coming in future posts!
