Oak Island

My project will tell you about the history of Oak Island. You will learn about the island and interesting things about it.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I learned about my topic was that there is an island in Canada that could possibly have treasure on it. It has also claimed 6 people's lives. Also, only 3 guys started the 300 year treasure hunt for, well, you'll find that out when you watch my video.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I have learned to never stop chasing you dreams. Even if they seem impossible, you should keep going. Just think... the Wright brothers followed their dreams and created the first airplane, and Stephen Hawking, I don't even know where to start with him.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Well, first of all, we have more advanced tools then the did back in the 1700s. Just think, back in the 1700s, they were using shovels to try to find this treasure. But now, we have big drills and metal detectors to help us locate it.
