Vous avez une mission de Gilles Hocquart, intendant en Nouvelle-France en 1745: à travers l'analyse d'une image, de textes du site Sociétés et Territoires et d'un jeu de table, vous devez comprendre l'organisation du régime seigneurial et dessiner un plan à l'aide d'un logiciel de dessin afin de devenir vous-même un seigneur!


À la défense de Québec, capitale de la Nouvelle-France
http://www.pc.gc.ca/apprendre-learn/proj/d-q/index_f.asp
Bonjour tout le monde ! Je me présente : Toussaint Lucas, dit Vadeboncoeur. Je suis un soldat français, originaire de la Normandie dans le nord de la France. J'ai été envoyé à Québec, capitale de la Nouvelle-France, pour défendre cet endroit stratégique*.

Si tu le veux bien, partons à la découverte de l'histoire de Québec, de sa défense et de ses fortifications. Je serai ton guide et je partagerai tes aventures. Au cours de cette expédition en Nouvelle-France, tu participeras comme moi à la défense de Québec, à l'une des trois époques importantes de l'histoire de ses fortifications : 1645, 1690 et 1745.

LES:   Welcome to my seigneury
Document http://www.learnquebec.ca/en/content/curriculum_elem/socialsciences/cycle2_resources/les_seigneury/
Adapted from a Learning Situation developed originally in French by the RECIT-Univers social team, this scenario has,  as its pedagogical aims:   to get students to understand the organization of the society and territory of New France in 1745; to get them to recognize the importance of the seigneurial system and to identify the remnants of that system in existence today; to encourage students to examine the phenomenon of urbanization and its consequences for our relationship with the environment.

Defending Quebec, Capital of New France
http://www.pc.gc.ca/apprendre-learn/proj/d-q/index_e.asp
This is a recommended external link to a section of the Teacher's Corner of the Parks Canada web site.  This learning unit uses maps, a soldier's notebook and time lines, old and recent illustrations, photos and short texts.  The students will learn about Quebec and its fortifications during the time of New France. Once students have "enlisted" as soldiers, the French soldier Vadeboncoeur will lead the teams of new student recruits to explore each one of the three key periods in the history of Québec's fortifications: 1645, 1690 and 1745.

Life in New France Webquest
http://www.etsb.qc.ca/en/teacher_resources/ICT_RECIT/resources/webquests/nf/default.htm 

Life in New France is a webquest designed for Cycle 2 students. Students create a timeline of a day in their lives and then compare it to a day in the life of a child in New France. The web resources were created especially for this project.

Developed by Don McLean, Technology Consultant at the Eastern Townships School Board, Magog, Quebec


The Loyalists (A project with some resources that could also apply to Cycle 2)
http://www.learnquebec.ca/en/content/curriculum_elem/socialsciences/cycle3_resources/loyalists/
The Loyalists website was designed for Elementary Cycle 2 and 3 Geography, History and Citizenship Education. We have provided resources to help you guide your students as they travel through time exploring the lives of Loyalists who left the Thirteen Colonies and settled in present-day Canada from 1776-1792. For a detailed description of the site, see the Overview section. For more information on links to the Social Sciences program, see the Curricular Fit section.

An online exhibition that describes the adventure of New France, from the first voyages of discovery, to the end of the French Regime. It is comprised of 350 archival documents arranged under 12 themes.
