Château Ramezay Museum and Historic Site of Montreal, Montreal, QC
Guides in costume from the Château Ramezay Museum and Historical Site of Montreal bring the history of New France back to life for elementary school students. While handling artifacts and completing child-centered activities, children explore three aspects of Montreal history – the First Nations, Voyageurs in the Fur Trade and Daily Family Life, producing food and clothing. The session will describe how volunteer guides at the Chateau Ramezay Museum and Historic Site of Montreal prepare and carry out this social studies program that includes many tangible experiences and activities to captivate a class for 90 minutes.
