Storyboard Text

  • The Hunter and Gatherers
  • Good job, son! We have got plenty of fish for dinner this week!
  • I'm also excited to make more tools tomorrow, Father!
  • Agricultural Families
  • All these fresh vegetables will allow me to make more soup for the family!
  • Now that we have more land and crops, our wealth will also increase!
  • Pre- Industrial Families
  • Mother, what are father and brother doing outside? 
  • While we are inside cleaning and doing the chores, they are setting up the new saw mill we just got!
  • Some of the earliest Canadian Aboriginal people were hunter-gatherers. The men were usually tasked with hunting and fishing and the women's jobs included gathering fruits, nuts, etc. as well as caring for the children.
  • Urban Industrial
  • Agricultural families began to form when hunter-gatherers found fertile land and many animals in one area. Couples began to have more children in order to create a work force and succesfully sustain the farmland. Arranged marriages and polygamy became popular due to the fact that the result was more children to work on the farm. 
  • The Contemporary Canadian Family
  • Kids, your mother just got a job as a docto at the local hospital! You should be very proud of her
  • Mom, I'm going to miss you at home but I'm very proud of your hard work
  • While many families still resided on farms, the population increase from the agricultural economy resulted in the families outgrowing the land. Families began to move into the city, where the men would find work. The women would stay home to take care of the house and children.

  • Okay class, today we will be learning about our national heritage
  • The economy shifted to become based on factory production in towns and cities and work was done to earn a wage. The industrial nuclear family emerged, where the notion of motherhood as the primary role for a women became ideal. During this era, the children also actively went to school to earn an education. 
  • After the wealth of the post war decade ended, Canadian families found it hard to pay for necessities with only one parent- the Father, working. In the 60's & 70's women gained more status and started working outside their homes in order to solve that problem. Birth rate was found to decrease soon after.
