Newfoundland and Labrador is the Eastern Most part of Canada. It is a historic land, whose seas are home to icebergs and whales, where we will learn about the fishing industry, its impacts and its history. What stories do the locals tell? Whose stories go untold in this region, rich in history and intrigue.
Students familiarize themselves with Newfoundland’s fishing industry and understand its complex history, beginning with the migration patterns into Newfoundland, and covering the “Ghost fishing villages”, which remain along the coast.
Students learn about the local ecosystem, about whale migration patterns, and about the importance of icebergs in the environment.
Students learn about the historic importance of lighthouses, which helped explorers navigate the tricky coastline, and explore the local shipbuilding history.
