Frank Slide

I did a project of Frank Slide. I made a video of myself at the Frank Slide with my presentation I explained all about it.





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

I think the interesting thing I learned was about how loud it was. It was also interesting to learn about the longest living survivor of the Frank Slide. And that it is a big event in Canada's history.

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

I had fun learning about the Frank Slide,I learned that it was Canada's deadliest rock slide. Also, that it can collapse again in the future. And there was a mine horse along in the mine who got trapped for a month. I think it's something very interesting to learn about.

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

People would mine a lot back then in 1903. But nowadays we barely mine at all. And the clothes would be more modern. Today, people have more money too.
