PEDAGOGICAL INTENT
This pedagogical activity TAKE A BITE! aims to personally involve third elementary cycle students in a process to understand themselves, society, history and heritage through the virtual exhibition Sharing the Meal!

The activity is based on the foods and meals on our plates and provides an overview or a review of the important period in the history of Québec, from New France to the 21st century.
