This resource includes two webquest scavenger hunts for Canadian explorers. The first is designed for the website http://www.masters.ab.ca/bdyck/early-canada/explorers/ - the explorers covered are Cabot, Cartier, Frobisher, Champlain, and Hudson. Students will complete activities for each one which consists of a True or False and a Fill-in-the-blanks activity. There is also a "What did you Learn?" question section at the end of the webquest.
The second webquest is designed to use with the website http://www.canadiana.ca/hbc/intro_e.html and is about the history of the Hudson Bay Company. The explorers covered are Brule, Nicollet, Groseilliers, Radisson, Kelsey, Hearne, La Verendrye, and Mackenzie. Students will complete a Jeopardy-type activity where answers are provided and they construct the questions. Answer keys are included.
Both websites were designed with upper elementary students in mind and the reading level is appropriate.
