Dans mon projet, je parle du Stampede de Calgary, son historique, les épreuves du rodéo et l'impact sur le Canada. Je fais aussi une démonstration de la course entre barils, seule activité du Stampede ouverte aux filles.
In 1914, under the rule of the Canadian Government stating that anyone who wishes to immigrate into Canada must come direct from their home country, the Komagata Maru made the next to impossible voyage to Canada from Hong Kong. After seven long weeks at sea the ship finally made it to Canada, but was denied access. The boat sat in the waters for eight long weeks then turned around and went home. This project covers this incident and also touches on anti-Asian discrimination and also how the Canadian Government has changed, for the better in under 100 years.
The Frank Slide was one of the most dangerous rock slides in Canada. It happened April 29, 1903 at 4:10am. It covered half the town of Frank, Alberta with huge boulders.

I decided to do my project on my grandmother Carol Nowlin. My grandmother and I are really close, and I wanted to learn about her life as a child. In this project I hope to show how much the world has evolved and the impact our elders have on us.
