Feedback form is now closed.
Lors de cet atelier, il sera question de l’importance des voyageurs dans l’exploration de l’Ouest canadien et de la présence continue des Canadiens-Français, particulièrement en Alberta.
Qui étaient ces voyageurs? Comment ont-ils exploré les Pays-d’en-Haut? À quoi ressemblait leur quotidien? Quels étaient leurs défis et leurs plaisirs? Connaissez-vous quelques-unes de leurs traditions? Avez-vous entendu parler de la légende de la Chasse-Galerie? Quelles « traces » avons-nous encore aujourd’hui de leur présence?
Cet atelier suscitera l’intérêt de tous les enseignants qui veulent en savoir davantage sur l’histoire des voyageurs, des explorations et de la présence des Canadiens-Français dans l’Ouest canadien. Il permettra surtout aux enseignants de 5ème année de mieux faire comprendre aux élèves le RAS 5.2.3 du programme des Études Sociales : « Explorer d’un œil critique les modes de vie en Nouvelle-France en étudiant les questions d’enquête suivantes et en y réfléchissant :
• Comment les récits et les légendes entourant les « coureurs des bois » et les voyageurs reflètent-ils l’histoire, la culture et la présence des Francophones partout au Canada? »
