Description:

Designed for young people, this multimedia site that takes as its theme About Work was funded by the government of Saskatchewan, and provides a number of insights into the various work activities of people in this Prairie province from the First Nations groups to the present day. Using an embedded timeline, visitors can elect to browse through one of the four temporal periods, and read stories about various work activities, including such activities as fur trading and buffalo hunts. Each written story is complemented by various images, and the text contains highlighted terms for which additional information is offered in a small balloon that appears above the text. Each timeline section also contains a short video, a highly interactive map of the region (with themes that can be toggled on and off), and a help feature. Visually stimulating and interactive, this well-designed learning tool will help young people learn about this sometimes neglected region of Canada.
