MARGUERITE BOURGEOYS MUSEUM
Have your students live the adventure of Marguerite Bourgeoys and the pioneer men and women who left France in the 17th century to come and settle in Montreal, a new land of welcome.
By taking on the role of these men and women who built Montreal, the children will walk in their shoes and follow the path they took to found a new city. Considering the reasons early Montrealers left Europe and came to New France, the difficult conditions of the boats on which they travelled and the day-to-day life of the times, students will be introduced to the Montreal of bygone days and to its inhabitants.
