Early West Coast Exploration: Captain Cook & Vancouver
Presented as an explorer in the age of discovery, students will explore these questions with the help of the Maritime Museum of BC: What was the motivation for exploration and discovery of the Northwest Coast? How did interactions between First Nations and the explorers impact and shape the development and history of BC and Canada? What were key innovations in navigation, technology and seafaring? Students will interact with knot tying and artifact exploration activities. Remember to have some rope or shoelaces on hand for this one!
