Product Description
First Nations and Europeans in New France - The Great Fur Fair of 1682 is an engaging role play activity ideal at the end of a unit for helping students synthesize their background knowledge about the interactions between these groups in the late 17th century.

Each student is assigned a character that may have been present at the annual fur trading fair held in Montreal in 1682, and given a brief background history of his/her character. Students use the information sheets included in this resource to help them understand what a fur fair entailed, and decide what other characters they will meet at the fair would be most important for their characters to interact with. A recording sheet is included for students to record their role play plan as well as write a short reflection about what happened during the "fair". An assessment rubric is included as well.

This product includes:
- teacher's notes
- a two-page student information sheet
- student recording sheet
- 34 Character Descriptions
- Assessment Rubric

This unit has been created to help meet the 2013 Ontario Ministry of Education Social Studies Curriculum for Grade 5.
