Students will discover early Canadian history, through the exploration of culture-contact, with a three-part educational program, which includes an introductory video, offering students a tour of the 17th century mission village, a live question and answer session with a Museum Professional and follow-up activities to extend the educational experience beyond the live session.
During the virtual tour through Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, students will learn about its rich history as Ontario’s first European community and the headquarters for the French Jesuit Mission to the Huron Wendat from 1639 to 1649. They will follow in the footsteps of early European settlers and learn how the Wendat people came to influence the lives of the newcomers.
This flexible, curriculum-linked virtual field trip is available for in-class or remote learning and is most suitable for grade 3 to 8 students. It is available on Microsoft Teams or Google Meet.
