Early explorers and navigators expanded the influence of their empires as they ventured across oceans and borders in search of territories to colonize. This program brings to life many of Canada's earliest explorers. Beginning with the arrival of people across the Beringia Land Bridge, students will learn about the explorers who first came to and explored Canada. Along with learning about who these explorers were, we explain the reasons they came, what they were hoping to find here, and their early contact and interaction with Canada's aboriginal societies. Students will meet Leif Ericsson, John Cabot, Jacques Cartier, Martin Frobisher, Samuel de Champlain, Henry Kelsey, George Vancouver, Simon Fraser, David Thompson, and of course, our original explorers, the First Nations people.
