IMMIGRATION TO THE WEST COAST
Grades 5 & 6 Social Studies
Immigration to BC involved many hardships as well as opportunities. From exploration and first contact, to settlement and global migration, the motivation for trade, prosperity and freedom sparked multiple waves of immigration. These journeys forever changed the lives of individuals, families and communications, and built BC as we know it today. Students will become museum detectives with a suitcase exploration activity, delving into the experiences of immigrants and how immigration has built Canadian society.
Please note: Registration for LIVE programs must occur at least 2 hours before the scheduled program and provide an e-mail, or we can not guarantee that you will receive the link to participate. We will contact you before the program, and are available for Zoom troubleshooting aid up to 2 hours before the program start time.
