                               Discover the challenges your settlement group faced in
                               early Canada.
                                  Choose a challenge like finding food or
                                     transportation or building a home.
                                  Find facts from The Kids’ Site of Canadian
                                     Settlement and primary sources that tell something
                                     about your challenge.
                                  Then draw a conclusion about the challenge (e.g.:
                                     The group ate a lot of different kinds of foods).

                               See how many challenges you can complete. If you need
                               more pyramids you can draw them yourself on another
                               sheet of paper.
