EARLY WEST COAST EXPLORATION
Grades 4 & 6 Social Studies
Presented in the character of Captain Cook in the age of discovery, students will explore the questions: What was the motivation for exploration and discovery of the Northwest Coast? How did interactions between First Nations and the explorers impact and shape the development and history of BC and Canada? What were key innovations in navigation, technology and seafaring? Students will interact with knot tying and artefact exploration activities.
