Fathers of Confederation Research Project
The Fathers of Confederation were important people that worked together to promote and encourage people in their colonies to support Confederation or who represented those against confederation at the confederation conferences.

In order to learn more about these men, research the life of one of the key figures involved in the Confederation debate. Then present your information to the class in a 3-5 minute presentation.

It is recommended that you use:


  1. Powerpoint/Prezzi other slideshow
