WOLFE AND MONTCALM

Learn all about the historic battles and take a ringside seat to watch a friendly clash between generals Wolfe and Montcalm. To decide who will be the winner between these two generals, a contest is organized in which you will take part. A musket loading competition, military and surgery quizzes will seal this thorny situation permanently.

"The activity was interactive and incredible. Guides were funny, very lively and good actors. Bravo and thank you! What a good activity! The use of the interactive whiteboard was excellent and gave a visual support that makes it easier for French immersion groups. The equipment = excellent!" — François B. and Maxime A., Université Sainte-Anne, Pointe-de-l'Église, Nova Scotia.
