Your students bring their digital cameras along on a learning excursion to Lower Fort Garry. Each small team of students will be given a list of objects, places, and characters that they must photograph at the Fort, as well as a series of questions to be answered at various locations. Students must use their communication skills to achieve their goal. The team that best fulfills the requirements of their assignment wins a prize—but the real prize here is the experience of discovery your students will have exploring the site and its rich history.
