The Maritime Museum of BC is going virtual with MMBC Discovers Live and many of our learning programs! Our programs have been designed using the BC curriculum, and adapted for a virtual format using everything we know about learning online!
Join us for a program LIVE using Zoom Meetings, where they have the chance to interact with our museum educators. After purchasing a Live program, you will receive a link to register for the Zoom Meeting.
THE HUDSON’S BAY COMPANY AND THE FUR TRADE
Grades 4 & 9 Social Studies
The Hudson’s Bay Company is Canada’s oldest national company. What were its powerful effects on First Nations, and how did it play a key role in the development of Fort Victoria and Canada? Students will become curators and examine real otter and beaver pelts, a Hudson’s Bay blanket, and other items important to the trade economy. Relations between First Nations and the HBC will also be included.
Live Programs Schedule:
Thursday, April 9, 2020 – 11:00 AM PST
Tuesday, April 28, 2020 – 2:00 PM PST
