We’ve been studying the key industries that built this province and for these industries to be successful they need workers! Our focus today will be to learn more about the different groups of people that came to BC. We already know of some groups who lived in the colonies of Vancouver Island and BC (First Nations, British, Americans, HBC employees), but who else came to populate the colonies and help build the province?
HOMEWORK: Ensure you are caught up in the unit thus far in preparation for your open book assessment next Thursday. Begin researching your family’s immigration history (how did you come to live in PoCo?). We will need this for next Friday.
We’ve already learned about a key industry that helped build the province – gold. But there were other key industries that helped build the province, including lumber, fishing, coal mining, and agriculture.
You’ll be visiting 4 stations today and looking at “newspapers” to learn more about each industry and its connection to building the province.
British Columbia is a province built on its resources – they were important to our past and remain an integral part of our economy.
Today we will focus on learning about one particular resource that drew thousands of people to the colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia – GOLD!
