Marguerite Bourgeoys

Tell me about the museum

This activity, developed especially for the first cycle of elementary school, introduces children to the visit of a museum in a recreational way. Through interactive workshops, students discover the various functions of a museum.

During the visit, the children will be led to observe the precious objects kept in the museum and will hear stories based on the items in the exhibition. Then they will be invited to learn what school was like in the old days, comparing their own experience as  pupils with that of Marguerite Bourgeoys’ first pupils and those of the Bon-Secours school once located in rooms  that are now part of the museum.

Montreal, Land of Welcome

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.

There was faith in Montreal

This new activity, prepared for elementary school cycle 2, introduces pupils to the Catholic religion and its main characteristics and is part of the course on Religious and Moral Instruction, with close ties to the Social Studies program.

The children will learn about a chapel and uncover its mysteries, discovering how this sacred space is organized for the Catholic ritual. They will also find out who Marguerite Bourgeoys was and how she contributed to the development of Ville-Marie. The story of Marguerite Bourgeoys will be the launching point for introducing the role of religious communities in the history and development of New France.
