The History of Alberta

The governments of the provinces that make up the Interior Plains-Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Northwest Territories-all provide Web sites with valuable information for students and teachers. This Alberta site provides the opportunity to learn about the history of the province, beginning with the fur trade. Links take viewers to other topics, including the history of settlement in the province. You may want to have students log on to the other provincial sites to gather and compare information about the history of settlement in the region.

The City of Regina

Many of the histories of settlement on the Interior Plains are recorded on a city's official Web site. The Web site for the city of Regina is a good example. It provides students with facts about Regina and a look at its history to discover how the city developed from its early beginnings. Encourage students to search the Internet for other cities, such as Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Calgary, to do further research and make comparisons about different settlements in the region.
