Discover the origins of the Fur Trade in Canada and how this commercial enterprise influenced the economic development of the Peace Region! Students will learn about the journeys of explorers, fur traders, and voyageurs through the prairies. Students will recognize the importance of First Nations’ and Métis Nations’ contribution to the fur trade and in shaping Alberta’s identity. Students will also learn about how the fur trade competition affected the environment and the lifestyle of the First Nations.
Through the Fur Trade Shopping Game, students will assume the role of a hunter and fur trader to understand the factors that affected hunting success and how transactions between fur traders and hunters took place. Students can also write postcards “back home” and listen to trapping stories.
