This dynamic presentation on the Fur Trade provides visuals, guided notes, and reflection questions to keep your students engaged for the entire lesson. Bring this era of history to life.
The fur trade brought two different worlds together and changed both forever. For Europeans, they would become incredibly wealthy and powerful. For Native Americans, their entire culture would change as they become increasingly dependant on Europeans.
This presentation examines the following topics
♦ First Contact
♦ Samuel de Champlain
♦ Founding of New France
♦ Champlain's alliance with the Huron
