Social Chapter 3 task to accompany your iMovie book trailer

In addition to your Sister to the Wolf iMovie trailer you will need to hand in a piece of writing that shows you understand life in New France so here is your challenge. Pretend to be someone from the novel and write a letter to someone else (can be a character from the novel but does not have to be). You will need to merge what you learned from Sister about Quebec and the Fort Detroit area as well as what you have learned in Social Studies. You may use your text book, notes, Sister to the Wolf as well as the Life in New France books. Your letter must

Tell that person what life is like in New France, what you do, what it’s like to live there, what you have, what you wish you had and anything else about the goings-on in the colony.

Note: Remember your time period (historical context), and the kinds of things you do and do not have, what was invented at this time, what wasn’t. Your letter must be a minimum of one page long, single spaced and neat. Of course your letter can be longer, if it takes you more than a page to tell them about what life is like. You may choose to type your good copy, that’s fine. Ensure you address it to someone appropriately, and that you give them as much information about your life in the colony as possible.
