*Approved by Le Centre de leadership et d'évaluation for Ontario’s Ministry of Education.
Develop oral communication skills while gathering information about the Métis bison hunt.
A major event bringing people together, the communal bison hunt was at the heart of Métis life in the Prairies from 1820 to 1860. How did the Métis prepare for the bison hunt? What did a bison hunt look like? What dangers awaited the hunting caravan?
The information in the games allows students to appreciate the scope and organization of the most important event in 19th century Metis society. The game format allows students to role-play the experience as a Métis person.
Self-assessment tools and additional information are available for each of the interactive whiteboard games. Can be played in small groups or with the whole class.
