Socials 10-3: Reviewing the fur trade and comparing boats

Today we reviewed the map of Canada as it concerned the HBC and the NW Co.  We also handled some trade goods such as ink, nails and lye soap.  We took some notes from the PPT and then used the links on yesterday's SS10 class's post to access info on York boats and canoes.  We created a table to compare the two and then reviewed our answers.  I'll post a copy of our review later since the other class has still to complete this task for their homework.

Tomorrow as HBC partners, we will try to create a business plan to compete with the NW Co who is challenging our monopoly.

There is no homework today and we should have books by tomorrow.
