Product Description

The Fur Trade 1600s to Early 1800s Webquest uses two great websites that allow students to get a better understanding of the importance of the fur trade in the development of the United States. The webquest also covers the people and nations involved in the fur trade as well as the items that were traded and produced for the fur trade. The webquest is very easy to follow for students in grades 5-12.

The following three website are used:

Website 1: French and the Great Lakes Fur Trade 1600s-1700s
