Early European Exploration

Canada had lots of cool explorers who brought people, ideas, and trade to Canada.

With a small group, pick one of the four explorers or the community listed below and explain why it drew people to Canada, or caused them to leave in disgust.

Be sure to include

  • relevant dates,
  • events,
  • ideas,
  • and changes.

Explain why this person or place is significant and what they did to change the course of Canadian history. Did they succeed or fail? Did they set a good example or bad? Were others encouraged to come after them?

Put your information together in a nice wall chart/poster so other folks can learn from you.
